About the Program and the Internship


Stanford’s Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law (CDDRL) seeks to hire a Stanford undergraduate student to assist in the administration of the Draper Hills Summer Fellows Program on Democracy and Development (DHSFDD). DHSFDD is a three-week executive education program run by an interdisciplinary team of Stanford faculty, bringing together approximately 28 leaders from transitioning countries annually. This year the program will run from July 16 - August 5, 2017. The intern will assist with communications, coordination, and management of logistics for this group. For more information about the program, please visit our website at http://cddrl.fsi.stanford.edu/summerfellows

Please note that the interns will be responsible for coordinating and attending weekend excursions, dinners, and weeknight film screenings. It will be necessary that the intern remains flexible to commit weekends and evenings to program activities during the duration of the three-week program.

It is ideal for undergraduates interested in the politics and economics of developing countries. They will have the opportunity to interact with specialists from the developing world as well as CDDRL/FSI faculty, scholars, and the larger research community. Past interns have reported that the internship was life-changing, reframing their perspectives on politics and life in developing countries. Friendships with fellows have also endured long after the program’s conclusion.
