All Education Studies Scholars are required to complete a field experience, which can be a full summer internship/fellowship or be conducted part-time during the academic year. This list (originally generated by Undergraduate Career Services) is a resource for all students interested in education. It contains a number of programs and organizations, both in New Haven and elsewhere, including some that offer internships and post-graduate opportunities.

The Education Studies Scholars program offers a Field Experience Fellowship to support Scholars to support unpaid internships or other projects during the summer. The fellowship has supported Scholars in a range of placements including the Brookings Institute, Head Start, the New York State Department of Education, the Musee de l’Illustration Jeunesse, the West Virginia Department of Education’s Office of Early Learning, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD, the Center for Arts Education, the Campaign for Educational Equity, and the US State Department, as well as research in Denmark, Japan, and Washington state.
