This research is funded by USAID.

College of William and Mary students from all backgrounds are welcome to apply to the internship. Proficiency in foreign languages is a plus, especially in Chinese, Spanish, French, Arabic, Korean, and Japanese languages.

Interns and Research Assistants are expected to work remotely for a minimum of 10 hours/week in the spring. For further information, please contact Kyra Solomon at or Sheng Zhang at
