Develop your governance experience! Apply to the 2011 Founder’s Internship
The Institute on Governance is now accepting applications for the 2011 Founder’s Internship Award. Applications will be accepted until all internships have been awarded for 2011. Recipients of the Award may take-up their internships as of May 1, 2011 with starting dates to be agreed to between the recipient and the Institute.
The Founder’s Internship Award recognizes excellence in scholarship and student engagement in public sector governance. The Founder’s Internship extends the Institute’s mission of promoting good governance as a key factor of success of governments, organizations and democracies. The Award consists of a twelve to fourteen week resident internship at the IOG’s offices in Ottawa or Toronto. Recipients receive a stipend for the duration of their internship. Recipients of the Internship contribute to all facets of the IOG’s activities, thereby applying the knowledge and experience to the Institute’s research, publishing, and training programs.
Past interns include Kathleen Metcalfe who’s currently earning her Doctorate in Psychology at the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, Nick Marler who’s completing his MA in Political Science at Carleton University and Trevin Stratton who is presently attending Yale as a Visiting Scholar in International Studies.
