The evaluation team at the Nebraska Resource Project for Vulnerable Young Children (NRPVYC) is always on the lookout for talented undergraduate students who are seeking a research-oriented internship. Our undergraduate research assistants (URAs) become engaged in the evaluation process and have real-world research experiences such as conducting data collection in unique settings like the Lancaster Juvenile Court for our Court Improvement Projects or managing critical survey dissemination for the Center on Reflective Practice. Our URAs present scientific posters at leading conferences such as The University of Nebraska Undergraduate Research Fair and the Annual Meeting of the American Psychology and Law Society as well as successfully pursue graduate education at premier institutions such as The University of Nebraska–Lincoln and Harvard University.
If you are an undergraduate student that is detail-oriented, interested in research and evaluation, and is willing to ask questions when unsure on how to do things, consider an internship with the NRPVYC evaluation team. Interest in ultimately attending graduate school in a social science field is preferred but not necessary.
To see if you would be a good fit for a URA position with the NRPVYC evaluation team, email your resume, cover letter, and a writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org in Word or PDF formats. After your email your materials, we will move forward with fully considering your application.
