I highly recommend applying for the La Follette School Summer Policy Learning Experience (internship grant) – it made possible my internship in Portugal!
After completing my terminal degree, I want to work for a salient agricultural-research organization that has tangible influence on food policy – such as the US Department of Agriculture, Food & Drug Administration, or International Food Policy Research Institute.
