I'd like to bring to your attention PPIC's Richard J. Riordan Summer Intern Program.  The Richard J. Riordan Summer Intern Program provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students interested in a public policy career to work in a policy research environment.  Intern projects are proposed by PPIC researchers and designed around a specific set of tasks and deliverables that can be accomplished within the term of the internship.

We have several summer internship opportunities available, as detailed in the descriptions on our website at  The application deadline for summer internships is March 13, 2009.
We would appreciate your assistance in spreading the word about these internships to qualified candidates.  PPIC values the wide variety of backgrounds and experiences of our staff.  Key elements in the consideration of qualified candidates include excellence; diversity of talents, backgrounds, and viewpoints; and a strong fit with our mission and goals.  PPIC is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
The Public Policy Institute of California is an independent, nonpartisan, non-profit research institution, based in San Francisco.  The institute informs policymaking by producing and disseminating high-quality, objective research on a range of public policy issues.  
Contact List: We plan to contact you periodically through e-mail with notes about PPIC research job openings.  Please let me know if you'd prefer we don't do that, or if there are other contacts we should add.
