Opportunities & Internships
National & International University/College Affiliated Student Program
At Results International Research & Consulting, we believe the future of our planet relies on current and future generations to have the opportunities to take bold steps toward innovation. Furthermore, innovation is not solely the domain of science and technology – innovation in education, application, policy and governance and inclusive strategies that blend critical and divergent thinking to develop the unique and creative solutions the world demands of our youth.
To address this need, we have developed Campus Affiliate program through the Society of Global Health Researchers in Action and Smarter Perspectives which allows current students to leverage resources and networks we have developed over the years to work together across boundaries of state, mind and thought to engage the world.

Here are some of the things our 2015-16 Fellows and Interns had to say and points they’ve included on their resumes:
“One of the very first things that I worked on for my Fellowship was the Niger River Delta project. I really enjoyed working on this project, because it gave me insight into more environmental issues that there are going on around the world, which is something that has never really been my focus. It was also a nice jumping off point to get the internship started.”
“The Brazil Research topic on water and the military- I enjoyed the research and writing for that project, it was a good project to use and integrate together a variety of academic, government, and news source.”
- Worked as team leader and coordinated the people working on the Whole of Government policy paper.
- Prepared a brief to encourage policy action in the area of geospatial intelligence.
