Brickell Metcalf Internship

Launched in 2016, the Brickell Metcalf Internship Program is an initiative facilitated by the Becker Friedman Institute, aimed at providing research opportunities to University of Chicago undergraduate students.

The internship is funded by Mark Brickell, AB’74, and Anita Brickell, AB’75, MBA’76. 

The Brickell Metcalf internship is for undergraduate students interested in conducting research with the intent of increasing liberty. The program aims to produce research to develop a better understanding of the effects of law, regulation, and government policy on human behavior. Students are encouraged to choose from a number of possible research opportunities offered by faculty members, who submit proposals for desired research assistant support.
