Check out this great new opportunity to become a WISE student!
During the 8 - week program (June 6th – July 28th, 2021), WISE students work with a faculty-member-in-residence (FMR) – a prominent engineering/ public policy professional – who creates a schedule of meetings, field trips, and events where the WISE interns interact with leaders in the U.S. Congress, the Administration, and federal agencies, industry, and prominent non-governmental organizations.
In addition to the meetings and field trips mentioned above, each student is responsible for independently researching, writing, and presenting a paper on a topical engineering-related public policy issue that is important to the sponsoring society.
IMPORTANT NOTE: WISE applicants should choose their research topics prior to arriving in Washington, DC. Review the WISE journal for the topics chosen by past WISE interns.
The WISE students work under the guidance of the FMR. While writing their papers, WISE students will also interact with, and are mentored by representatives of their sponsoring societies.
The WISE Internship is not a paid internship. Students receive a stipend of $1,500.00 to assist with travel expenses.
Applicant must be (1) a Junior or Senior engineering student (must have physically attended a university or college at least 6 semesters or equivalent, if schools has quarter system) or a recent engineering graduate beginning study in a graduate-level, technology policy-related program; (2) a citizen or legal permanent resident of the United States; and (3) a student (or higher grade) member of the SAE International.
