Higher Education Doctoral Internship

 
The Southern Education Foundation (SEF), located in Atlanta, GA, has developed a unique doctoral internship program in higher education that provides outstanding doctoral students an opportunity to intern at SEF for the summer. Students pursuing doctoral degrees in higher education or related fields are invited to apply. This opportunity is intended to expose promising graduate students to career opportunities in the non-profit higher education sector while gaining experience that compliments a program of study.
 
The doctoral intern will work to assist the development of SEF’s higher education programs and related research projects. Primary areas of focus for this summer include improving the capacity of Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) to conduct systematic assessments of student learning, improving developmental education, and academic program innovation at MSIs. Students interested in this opportunity should have working knowledge and genuine interest in Minority-Serving Institutions and the students most likely to attend them.
