TRANSFORMING THE STUDY OF POVERTY
The SHECP Community pivoted to a hybrid format for the SHECP Summer Internship Program, which led to an
expanded experience for Interns, Community Partners, Member Schools and Alumni.

The majority of SHECP Interns stated that their academic coursework and summer internship experience
helped increase their knowledge of poverty causes, consequences and interventions.
