I want to remind you about a great summer internship program -- the Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow Program, an intensive ten-week paid summer internship program in public policy. The program is open to undergraduates, graduate students and recent graduates and offers placements in two public policy tracks:
The state-based policy track offers interns the opportunity to gain experience with effecting change at the state-level. Interns can select from policy organizations in over 40 states. www.TheIHS.org/statepolicy
The DC policy track provides the opportunity to work on various policy issues at think tanks and nonprofit organizations around the Washington, DC area, gaining experience in public policy at the federal level. www.TheIHS.org/policy
All placements offer participation in (and travel to) the Washington, DC opening and closing workshops, a $1,500 stipend, travel reimbursement, and housing (or a housing allowance). DC based interns will attend weekly lectures, panels, and small group discussions on current policy topics.
The deadline to apply is January 31, 2009, less than a month away. Please pass this information along to any students who would find it of interest.
Thank you for your time,
