Internship: AEA Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI)
The American Evaluation Association welcomes applications for its Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI) Program that provides paid internship and training opportunities during the academic year. The GEDI program works to engage and support students from groups traditionally under-represented in the field of evaluation.
The goals of the GEDI Program are to:
- Expand the pool of graduate students of color and from other under-represented groups who have extended their research capacities to evaluation
- Stimulate evaluation thinking concerning under-represented communities and culturally responsive evaluation
- Deepen the evaluation profession’s capacity to work in racially, ethnically and culturally diverse settings
Deadline: Friday, April 17, 2020
Interns work the equivalent of approximately two days per week at an internship site near their home institutions from approximately September 1 to July 1. The interns may work on a single evaluation project or multiple projects at the site, but all internship work is focused on building skills and confidence in real-world evaluation practices. Interns receive a stipend of $10,000 in recognition of their internship work based on completion of the internship and satisfactory finalization of program requirements, including any deliverables due to the host agency, progress reports, and reflections on the internship experience.

Successful scholars accepted to the GEDI program are required to attend orientation/fall seminar virtually in mid-August to be continued in-person in late September.
