The Hunt Institute internship program provides current undergraduate and/or graduate students with the opportunity to dive deep into the education policy landscape of North Carolina and beyond, exploring historical context, current challenges, and innovative models with a focus on bipartisanship and research-based solutions.

Internship experiences vary greatly from student to student based on available time commitments, interests, and project streams. The Hunt Institute will work directly with each intern to develop a meaningful experience that meets the needs of both the intern and The Institute. Past tasks have included assisting with policy projects and events, including research and writing tasks; logistical support for events; social media support; data compilation and analysis; taking notes at key education meetings; and attending legislative hearings.
