Through the Jesse Jones Leadership Center Summer in D.C. Policy Research Internship Program, the Baker Institute is doing its part to help prepare young Americans to deal with the critical policy problems they will have to solve. Since 2004, the institute has supported 41 Rice University students at summer research internships at 33 influential government agencies, think tanks and nongovernmental organizations in Washington, D.C.
Participants attend a seminar on public policy and global affairs coterminous with their internships, write a research report for publication, present their work before Rice faculty and researchers, and organize a public education activity for the following academic year.
