More Information & Contact Info for Questions

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.

Interns are compensated hourly and may receive academic credit for their internship experience. General questions about the internship program may be emailed to Jamison Lowery at jlowery@hunt-institute.org. To express interest in future internship opportunities, please complete our online survey.
