The Technology and Society Internship Directory. A Comprehensive Guide to Washington, DC Internships, 1985-1986. First Edition.
Sabonis-Chafee, Terry, Ed.
Information is presented on internships in the Washington, D.C., area that enable students to explore the effects of technology and science on society. Science and engineering student interns work in nonlaboratory environments, and nontechnical students may work in issue areas and newly emerging public policy challenges. The directory includes opportunities in a wide range of issue areas as well as a broad sampling of organizations. While many of the placements are with nonprofit organizations, some positions are with business, government, and research groups. The 73 placement sites are listed under the following categories: media/communications, national security/nuclear weapons, health and safety, consumer issues, energy and environment, general science and society, and population and international development. Appended materials include: Student Pugwash Clearinghouse profile card, internship application form, sample resume, information on academic credit and compensation, advice for interns, a bibliography of additional directories, advice for creating an internship, information on the Student Pugwash Clearinghouse and other Pugwash programs and chapters, an index of placement types and special interest areas, an organization index, and organization acronyms.
