Student Opportunities

CCFL offers an innovative learning and mentoring experience.

We support many student assistantships and research experiences each year from a variety of departments and disciplines both at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the University of Nebraska-Omaha. Students gain hands-on experience working in a policy-relevant center where they put their research skills to use on real-world problems.

Experiential learning opportunities for students include:

  • Assisting in research activities.
  • Helping with service projects.
  • Working with faculty and project directors to present at conferences or publish their research.

Opportunities available

Apply to get hands-on experience working in a policy-relevant center.

Our Alumni Stories

What I loved about CCFL was collaborating with a wide range of professional disciplines to do work that really mattered: synthesizing evidence on adolescent pregnancy prevention programs, role-playing to assist in the evaluation of the new Child Advocacy Center, translating research for non-scientific audiences, and writing about the implications of welfare reform on children. I will always be grateful for my CCFL experiences, that prepared me so well for the work I do today.
