Editor’s note: – While it seems like an obviously relevant internship opportunity for political science, law and public policy, Humanities and liberal arts students, I would think that for other streams students too (especially those with IAS dreams, political aspirations or even MBA as career goal), this could be a meaningful internship. Having this experience on your CV may help you differentiate yourself from the rest and is usually looked upon favorably by the admission committees or employers.
