I got exposure to all steps in the development economics research process, from sitting in on interviews with potential surveyors, to data cleaning, to research for a literature review, to communications and reports.

It was exciting to be there as it happened...The dashboard helped ministers and officials get a much better idea about where they needed to send resources to help migrant workers. Our work helped inform policymakers about what sorts of actions they needed to take. – Michael Chang ’21

Due to the pandemic, many students' summer internship plans were canceled, including students whom Inclusion Economics at Yale University had identified to conduct in-person field internships in India that summer. Fortunately, we were able to instead offer remote opportunities to nine undergrads to work on a variety of projects, including new surveys on India's Covid-19 response.
