The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) established a policy development intern program (formerly called the research intern program) to help structure and conduct research to supplement and supply data for discussions related to procedural, process, and policy changes. The program is managed through the Financial and Business Services area of DPI, but conducts research for all areas of the agency. Our interns are graduate students from local universities who have an interest in education policy. Our webpage will provide you with both the findings of their research and information about applying to the program.
