EARN is a highly selective program for members of YEI affiliated EconClubs who are truly passionate about economics and want to gain real-world experience. EARN leverages YEI’s connections to match motivated students with economics internships at top universities and companies.
After passing a rigorous application process conducted by the YEI EARN team, students will be added to a prospective intern database that is available to our partner organizations. From there, EARN students may be contacted by these organizations with internship opportunities.
Note that being accepted to EARN does not guarantee an internship position. All EARN applicants must be affiliated with a YEI EconClub. If you do not have a YEI EconClub at your school, you may apply to start one here.
EARN provides economics students with opportunities to real-world experiences as well as access to a valuable community.
