The Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) partnered with the American Society of Hispanic Economists to create a new program this year that provided internships to current undergraduate and graduate students. Under the program, four highly qualified graduate students were awarded 10-12 week internships with EBSA and BLS. The interns worked with experienced economists and researchers and engaged in joint training opportunities, including local seminars, conferences and congressional hearings on issues relating to health insurance reform and retirement issues. Javier Celis presented observations about the program on behalf of the internship participants at the department’s July 23 Intern Meet and Greet Event with Secretary Solis. “We hope to continue this exciting program throughout the next several years,” said Solis.
