The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston seeks an intern to assist with analyzing the legal basis for including a policy goal of “financial inclusion” for the payments system as well as the potential for financial inclusion to be a policy goal of the distribution and creation of Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC). This internship would begin with an opportunity to hear from the team at the Boston Fed responsible for exploring the viability of a CBDC, known as Project Hamilton, to better understand the scope of the project and how they would envision embedding a policy of financial inclusion. This project would likely entail a review of relevant statutes and laws related to the Federal Reserve’s role in the payments system.
