DescriptionBridging Nations Foundation is a nonprofit, policy organization based in Washington, D.C. that promotes shared prosperity by developing international dialogue through collaboration and learning. We believe that technological innovation, particularly in areas of shared concern such as energy and the environment, will promote economic cooperation and secure the earth for future generations. Bridging Nations Foundation offers diverse educational programs that build cultural, political, and economic bridges between the United States, China, and India in order to address the realities of an increasingly interdependent world. The Bridging Nations Foundation is current focusing on our ongoing commitment to global higher education and workforce development and the role these fields play in global economic prosperity.
This semester we require dedicated interns for a data analysis project on the supply and demand of the labor market. We have begun research on the US supply and demand side, but we would like to expand our research to our other two countries of focus, India and China.
