The Research Councils organise internships for current Research Council-funded PhD students to spend three months at partner host organisations on one or more policy topics relevant to both the student and the host. You will have the opportunity to produce at least one briefing paper, participate in a policy inquiry and/or organise a policy event, or equivalent piece of work.
Internships are awarded to a number of Parliamentary, Government Departments and Non-Governmental Bodies, and Learned societies. AHRC-funded students have been very well-received by these organisations in the past, and alumni of the scheme have subsequently benefited from their policy experience and contacts in their ongoing research and career development.
There will be 22 Hosting Partners for the 2017/18 competition round:
