State Charter Schools Commission Internships

State Charter Schools Commission Internships

The State Charter Schools Commission (SCSC) of Georgia is looking for interns who are currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs relating to education policy, education law, economics or a related field and are interested in learning more about the charter school authorization process. Ideal candidates will demonstrate superior academic performance in their programs of study; interest in and knowledge of the charter school movement; excellent analytical and research skills; and proactive attitudes. Additionally, exceptional candidates will possess superior writing abilities. Interns can expect to gain valuable insight into Georgia government, education law, the charter school movement, educational reform, and the workings of a state agency while simultaneously honing research and writing skills. Interns will also be privy to agency meetings and meetings with external stakeholders.

Interns are paid at a $12 hourly rate and are expected to work a maximum of 20 hours per week. Ideally, the internship would run through the completion of the project. Start-dates and end-dates can be flexible.

Please submit applications via email to darcy.callaway@scsc.georgia.gov. Note: the application requires the submission of a resume or curriculum vitae, a transcript of grades (a copy of an unofficial transcript will suffice), a cover letter explaining your interest, and the contact information for two references. Applications that do not contain all required documents will not be reviewed. All application materials must be received by the deadline listed in the internship listing. Interviews will be held on a rolling basis.
