I’ll confess, before I came to Washington this summer I had never been inside the Library of Congress. I knew what the Library was and had a general idea of what went on there, but I had never set foot inside of the Jefferson Building. As for the Congressional Research Service (CRS) I knew of […]
Congressional hearings, executive orders, federal indictments: this summer was full of technology policy movement of the sort that my first year at Duke Sanford School of Public Policy prepared me to study, write about, and act on. Being a Carlucci Fellow gave me the opportunity to piece together a number of projects for my summer […]
This past summer I interned with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) within the modeling team. My specific work focused on IFC Fragile and Conflict-Affected Situations (FCS) Division, a group of nations that struggle with a variety of unique factors (social and armed conflict, exclusion of marginalized groups, low levels of trust in public institutions, etc). […]
My summer internship was at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP). I was a visiting research assistant on the Inclusive Peace Processes Team that works under the Applied Conflict Transformation Center. I built research and analytical skills constructing different memos, resource guides, and research papers for internal and external use. I also gained a […]
I spent my summer interning at the North Carolina Human Trafficking Commission, under the supervision of the Executive Director Christine Long. Through this position, I was able to both develop more thorough analytical skills, along with learn more about the political and functional processes of state commissions. My summer projects involved analyzing the prevalence of […]
My 2020 summer internship developed from the Carlucci Fellowship network. Matt Buchanan (MPP ’20) recommended North Carolina State’s Laboratory for Analytic Sciences based on his positive internship experience. The lab is a collaboration between the National Security Agency, NC State University, and industry partners. Although the global pandemic shifted the entire summer to virtual work, […]
During my first fall at Sanford, I knew I wanted to be abroad for the summer – the only question was where, doing what, and how. I knew I wanted to be working on strengthening civil society and bolstering marginalized populations, particularly in turbulent regions. Thanks to the generous support of the Carlucci family, I […]
I spent the summer working for Booz Allen Hamilton as a management consulting intern within the Strategic Innovation Group (SIG). I was specifically aligned to the Culture and Change Management Team within the Digital Strategy Group. Traditionally known for client-site based work, Booz Allen created the SIG several years ago to serve as an internal […]
This summer I worked at NC State’s Lab for Analytic Sciences (LAS). The National Security Agency (NSA) founded the LAS in 2013 to support the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Intelligence Community’s (IC) needs through government, industry, and academic cooperation. Most of the LAS is focused on technical innovation and system development, but I […]
It was spring break 2019, full of excitement and adventure… and internship hunting. Two months away from starting my summer break and I still had no idea where I was going to land. Finally, after a couple of applications and interviews, it was set, I was going to Israel. Wait, Israel? Really? Yes, really. […]
During the summer of 2019, I was selected as an embedded intern with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) in Manhattan, New York. For six weeks, I was embedded with the FBI Counter-Terrorism Team 6. Because of the support of the Carlucci Fellowship, this incredible experience was enhanced with the ability to bring my […]
