The Graduate Education Diversity Internship Program provides paid internship and training opportunities during the academic year. GEDI works to engage and support students from groups traditionally under-represented in the field of evaluation. Interns may come from a variety of disciplines outside of a degree already focused on evaluation, but should have a strong background in research skills, an interest in extending their capacities to the field of evaluation, and a commitment to thinking deeply about culturally responsive evaluation practice. Interns work the equivalent of approximately two days per week at an internship site near their home institutions from approximately September 1 to July 1. The interns may work on a single evaluation project or multiple projects at the site, but all internship work is focused on building skills and confidence in real-world evaluation practices. Interns receive a stipend of $10,000 and participate in a series of seminars and professional development trainings. More information here.
