Internship / Fellowship

From time to time, the National Council on Teacher Quality offers paid internships for undergraduate college students and paid fellowships for graduates and graduate students. Pay is commensurate with experience. Our interns and fellows form an integral component of our team.

We hire interns/fellows as needed and positions generally last 3-6 months. We can be flexible for applicants seeking a summer fellowship.

NCTQ is currently considering college graduates and graduate students for a Policy Fellowship for summer 2017. 

Applicants should have strong writing, research, and analytic skills, some facility with Excel, the ability to juggle a variety of tasks, as well as the ability to work well both independently and with others. A desire to learn and receive constructive feedback to develop skills and knowledge about education policy is essential.

We aim to provide fellows with varied experiences related to different aspects of teacher policy. A typical fellowship/internship includes engagement with NCTQ's major projects, including Great Districts for Great Teachers, the Teacher Prep Review, and the State Teacher Policy Yearbook. An effort is made to match specific assignments to applicants' research skills, experience, and interests.
