More about this internship

RFF awards resident internships each academic year in honour of Walter O. Spofford, Jr., who helped launch the RFF China Program in 1989. Spofford is known for mentoring Chinese researchers, working with Chinese officials to establish environmental standards compatible with sustainable economic growth, assisting in the development of environmental master plans, and helping to establish the Beijing Environment and Development Institute.

Internship awardees will earn a stipend in the amount of $375 per week. No housing assistance is provided.


RFF seeks highly motivated candidates in their first or second year of graduate training in the social or natural sciences. Candidates should also have outstanding policy analysis and writing skills. Specific information about the research interests of RFF can be found on RFF’s website. The intern can expect to work with one or more RFF researchers on a variety of ongoing projects or assist in the development of entirely new areas of research and policy analysis.
The program is open to both US and non-US citizens, provided that the latter have proper work and residency documentation. Chinese students are particularly encouraged to apply.

Internship Duration: Walter O. Spofford, Jr. Memorial Interns are normally in residence at RFF for three months during the summer.

Note: The award will be announced in April.
