UWA Public Policy Institute
Applications for the 2023 internship program now open
We're looking for up to four interns to join the team next year, working with us on policy research briefings, public in-person and virtual panel events, publications and more. An interest in public policy, social issues and evidence-based research is of benefit, but you need not have studied it as part of your degree.
