The Joint Program in Survey Methodology (JPSM) at the University of Maryland is pleased to offer a 10-week summer internship to rising juniors and seniors with an interest in survey methodology.
JPSM, in a unique partnership, brings together faculty from the University of Maryland and the University of Michigan, as well as researchers from Westat, a leading survey organization based in Rockville, MD. Through its educational offerings the Joint Program attempts to serve both professionals currently working in statistical agencies and survey organizations, and to educate the next generation of survey professionals.
Each summer JPSM sponsors a Junior Fellows Program for a limited number of undergraduate students. Successful applicants are granted paid research assistant ships in a Federal or private statistical agency in the Washington, DC area. They participate in weekly seminars at JPSM and elsewhere in the area on survey methodology and career options in survey research. Throughout the summer students learn about surveys, statistics, graduate studies, and how statistical agencies and survey organizations work, and they meet other students from across the country along with the JPSM faculty.
