The Baker Institute’s Internship Program aims to train the next generation of policy leaders by hiring degree-seeking students.
Interns work directly with institute fellows, scholars, and senior staff to support the Institute’s research and operations.
Degree-seeking undergraduate and graduate students may submit an application to be considered for a paid internship at the Baker Institute.
Applications submitted before February 15 in the Spring — and September 15 in the Fall — receive priority. However, the Institute accepts applications on a rolling basis throughout the Fall and Spring semesters.
The student-run forum provides exposure to the world of public policy through roundtables with Baker Institute fellows, informal debates on policy, private meetings with prominent policymakers and more.
The Master of Global Affairs Program, co-sponsored by the Baker Institute and Rice’s School of Social Sciences, integrates scholarship and practical training for global policymaking. The MGA is a full-time professional master's degree and students may expect to complete the program in two years.
Developed by the Center for Energy Studies and Rice’s Economics Department, the one-year Master of Energy Economics Program builds skills in energy market analysis to prepare graduates for leadership roles in the energy sector.
