Listening to Leaders (LTL) Survey Team Internship

The Listening to Leaders team at AidData is now accepting applications for Summer 2020 internships. AidData's Listening to Leaders program collects 360 degree feedback on development priorities, progress, and performance from the perspective of leaders in low- and middle-income countries. We research convergence and divergence in priorities; barriers and opportunities to advance reforms; performance of development partners; and evidence-informed policymaking. Check out our program page for past reports and datasets.

Interns will play a significant role in the implementation of the next Listening to Leaders survey. They contribute to projects by conducting research on the sampling frame, identifying the names, positions, and contact information of leaders working in government, development organizations, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and academia. Interns also produce descriptive statistics of the survey data, prepare dissemination material of survey results, and clean survey data, among other tasks.

Motivated and organized students of any major are encouraged to apply. Students from William & Mary, other non William & Mary schools, and recent graduates are welcome to apply. Interest in International Relations and/or fluency or proficiency in a foreign language are a plus. The internship starts at the end of May and lasts until the beginning of August, and is located at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. Interns will work unpaid for their first 60 hours and are then eligible to become research assistants paid at $8/hr. Interns and research assistants are expected to work at minimum 30 hours per week in the summer. For further information, please contact Hanna Borgestedt at
