Internships in Public Policy: Students in the Public Sector. Final Report, October 1972-August 1973.
Bakinowski, Daniel V.; And Others
The Internships in Public Policy program, funded by the National Science Foundation and administered by the Massachusetts Internship Office, was a pilot project designed to test whether the emerging professional talents of graduate students in the social science and law can be effectively harnessed to state government operations. Twelve graduate students from Boston area graduate schools were placed in three divisions of the Massachusetts Department of Community Affairs and other state offices. The resulting links were beneficial to the students by providing them with the "real world" experience that they seek; moreover, the state agencies where the interns were placed also benefited. The internship program enabled the agencies to expand their policy analysis capability at a very nominal cost. This report describes and evaluates the internship program, and summarizes each student's research project. (Author)
