Citi Aspen Intern Program
Managed by MicroTest and funded by Citi, the 2009 Citi Aspen Intern Program was a 12-week internship program that exposed 15 graduate students to the microenterprise development field in the U.S., while also helping microenterprise development programs collect high quality client outcomes data.
Prior to starting their internships, the Aspen Institute convened all the interns in Washington D.C. at the start of the project for training and orientation; and once again at the end of their internships to share their findings, success, and experiences that hopefully helped inspire careers in the field of microenterprise development.
