Employers And Intern Sponsors

Partner With Us to Develop Tomorrow’s Talented Leaders

For more than 30 years, the Sanford School of Public Policy has been preparing students for careers that address today’s complex issues. We strive to bridge the gap between their academic experience and the world of work through internships and jobs that require them to use strong analytical skills to solve problems facing public decision makers.

We need employers like you to successfully put this knowledge at the service of society. We invite you to be our partner in training future leaders, as their intern sponsor or first employer. In return, the Sanford School’s Office of Career Services will help you attract the best talent from our highly ranked public policy program.

Martin Eakes“Working for social change requires passion and commitment, but good intentions alone are not enough to keep a nonprofit organization growing and thriving. The Duke public policy graduates we have hired as interns and permanent staff at Self-Help and the Center for Responsible Lending bring outstanding skills in quantitative analysis, problem-solving and communications to bear on our work creating and preserving wealth for underserved families.”
