The Eno Transportation Foundation (Eno) in Washington, D.C., is offering a summer 2011 internship opportunity beginning in May or June. This is a great opportunity to learn about the transportation industry and gain valuable experience and contacts. The candidate selected will assist Eno staff with our leadership development programs, public policy forums, and publications. In addition, the successful candidate will research key public policy issues, including current legislation in the U.S. Congress.
Candidates should have a strong interest in transportation policy. Because Eno has a small staff, interns are expected to take on a variety of tasks to support the overall organization.
What is the Eno Transportation Foundation?
We are a nonprofit operating foundation recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization. The Foundation’s programs cover all modes of transportation, public and private sectors, and carriers as well as passengers and shippers. To enhance its effectiveness, the Foundation often conducts its activities in partnership with others in government, industry, or academia. The Foundation engages in three primary activities:
• It conducts policy forums with transportation leaders to discuss emerging issues and to assist in building the understanding needed to address them effectively.
• It tailors leadership development programs to prepare public- and private-sector professionals with the skills needed to understand and manage our most pressing transportation issues.
• It publishes research materials on transportation and the challenges the sector faces.
Interns will be paid a stipend of $2,000 per month toward their living expenses and/or to reimburse the cost of credit hours earned by the internship.
