ETS R&D also welcomes applications from scholars around the world who wish to conduct independent research in a field of interest to ETS and to connect with ETS's community of researchers.
This program focuses on major research activities that will occur in 2018. Selected interns conduct research under the guidance of ETS mentors at ETS offices in Princeton, N.J. Graduate students who are currently enrolled in full-time doctoral programs in the areas listed above and who have completed a minimum of two years of coursework toward their doctorate prior to the program start date are eligible to apply.
This program seeks graduate students who have completed their doctoral coursework and are at the dissertation stage of their program, working on a dissertation related to statistics, psychometrics, educational/psychological measurement or quantitative methods.

The Visiting Research Scholar Program is designed to provide educational and research experience of up to 12 months in length for academicians and researchers who are on sabbatical or other types of leave from their home institutions. The program seeks to achieve a mutually beneficial relationship between the visiting scholar and ETS researchers through intellectual exchange and collaboration in research.
