The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) announces a paid summer internship opportunity through the Princeton Internships in Civic Service (PICS) program. The intern will work in the Office of Commissioner Cheryl LaFleur ’75. The Office includes three advisers (two legal and one technical) who function much like law clerks in a judge’s office. The intern will work closely with the advisers, assisting with respect to cases and matters before the Commission next summer. Specific projects might include researching energy policy issues, reviewing draft orders, helping to prepare speeches, presentations, and social media postings along with other duties as assigned. The intern will have a unique opportunity to be closely involved in current energy issues, meet and interact with energy policymakers, and observe the operations of an independent regulatory agency. S/he will attend Commission meetings and might attend other energy meetings or conferences.
Students may apply through the PICS Internship website by December 10, 2014.
