HCBS Strategies has Internship opportunities available for credit or non-credit seeking students with the potential to extend throughout the year. Tasks may include but are not limited to research, data collection and analysis, assistance with note taking, report writing etc. Interns typically participate on site visits and meetings with state officials. Interns have the opportunity to participate in major systems change efforts that are transforming how states deliver long term supports and services (LTSS). Interns must have strong writing and analytic skills. Knowledge of Medicaid and other programs that fund LTSS is preferred. Depending upon the intern’s capabilities and interest, the internship could turn into a full time position. Position is ideal for someone who is interested in developing skills that will allow them to work as a government official, leader of a private section agency such as an Area Agency on Aging or Center on Independent Living, or a consultant. This internship is not a good fit for someone who is primarily interested in pursuing an academic career.
This internship would require you to be able to work from home/campus and requires internet use for online meetings etc. For summer interns we expect at minimum a standard 40 hour work week. We can provide more flexibility (e.g., 20 hour variable work weeks) for students interning during the school year. The monthly stipend of $2,000 reflects full time (40+ hours per week) internship status.
