The Centre for Policy Development seeks to combat the short-termism of the political cycle by producing creative and far-sighted ideas for a fairer, more inclusive and more sustainable Australia. CPD interns get to work on some of Australia’s long-term challenges, debate the issues, create innovative responses to them and help to communicate the findings.
We have two intakes per year in Sydney and Melbourne to coincide with academic semesters. Internships typically demand an investment of 100-150 hours; pay a small daily stipend to cover expenses; and are eligible for course credit at most universities.
2014 Internship Semester 2 Applications
All of our Semester 1 interns have decided to continue their research, finance and communications projects throughout Semester 2 and therefore places in our program are extremely limited until 2015.
