I went to a great ASAP conference held at Yale in the middle of April looking at what might replace the MDG framework- more about that later. In the meantime, if you’re interested in being an intern or have a role for an intern, then the ASAP network can help you.
As ASAP describes it:
We are happy to announce the inception of the ASAP internship program, a new service aimed at supporting academics working on poverty alleviation projects.
Through the internship program ASAP will provide select academically based poverty alleviation projects with qualified student interns.
Academics Stand Against Poverty (ASAP) is offering students a unique opportunity to intern for a range of academically based projects aimed at alleviating global poverty.
The ASAP internship program is designed for students interested in doing work that has a real impact on global poverty while utilizing and developing their skills as academics.
It seems you can get involved in the following ways:
1.If you are working on a project that could benefit from the help of ASAP interns you can apply to participate in the program here
2.If you would like to nominate a student as a candidate for the internship program please contact: Katie Lewis, Katie@academicsstand.org
3. If you are a student interested in doing work that has a real impact on global poverty while utilizing and developing your skills as an academic you can apply for an internship here
Current Internship Opportunities can be found here, but include: Access to Medicines Lawsuit Internship, Global Health Software Development Internship and Rights and entitlements in India internship
