Latin American Economic Development Internship in DC this summer (PAID)

We invite applications for the “Internship on Latin American Economic Development” for this coming summer. These have been established to encourage students to continue their study of economics throughout the summer and will provide an opportunity for working on research projects with Staff from the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and, indirectly, Middlebury Economics faculty members.

The topics of the fellowships vary from year to year. While the theme is not yet finalized, the one or two interns likely will focus on the analysis of Conditional Cash Transfers (CCTs) in Latin America and the Caribbean or analysis of school dropout rates. The successful candidate will spend approximately 8 weeks in Washington DC, based in the Social Protection and Health Division of the IDB, under the supervision of Drs. Marco Stampini and Pablo Ibarraran. The intern will provide research assistance in the support of ongoing research projects in this theme. The stipend will be approximately $3000.
