Leadership student Evan Dembkowski from the Class of 2009, a Peace Corps Coverdell Fellow, has been assigned to USAID’s headquarters in Washington, DC. He will work on gender and development issues.
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is the lead foreign assistance agency of the United States government. They selected three (3) IPED students for summer assignments in Africa and in Washington, DC. IPED is Fordham University’s Graduate Program in International Political Economy and Development. USAID’s summer internships are highly selective and provide an excellent opportunity for outstanding students in international development.
Interns will have the opportunity to contribute to USAID’s work while learning valuable lessons about international development and working closely with USAID’s professional staff. The work assigned to an intern in most office divisions includes research, writing program memoranda, drafting documents, facilitating meetings and special events, attending program discussions in the Agency and at the Department of State, and communicating on program issues for USAID field Missions abroad.
Congrats to Evan and good luck in the future!
