Application Process

The Program Evaluation and Education Research (PEER) Internship Program for Undergraduate Students is a paid work-study opportunity for undergraduate students to learn new research, evaluation and leadership skills. Interns will receive training in educational research and evaluation techniques while contributing to PEER Group projects. Students from historically marginalized communities are encouraged to apply.

Interns will be selected based on their interest in education and developing research and evaluation skills. No prior experience is required. Hours are flexible, and work schedules must be developed in consultation with the intern supervisor. The average hours per week are fluid, as some weeks interns may work up to 10 hours, and other weeks interns may not work any hours. 

Intern Responsibilities

Each intern will work on a variety of research and evaluation tasks, such as:

  • identifying and organizing relevant articles for literature reviews
  • cleaning data and performing data entry 
  • building surveys and online reports in Qualtrics 
  • creating tables and charts 
  • supporting data collection and/or site visit logistics 
  • coordinating focus groups
  • formatting and copy editing memos, reports and presentations
  • website support
