If you, or someone you know, would be interested in an internship at the Show-Me Institute this fall, today is the application deadline. But, if you get your application to us by Monday, we'll still consider you.
You can find the details and application form in this PDF file on our website. At this stage, it would be a good idea to e-mail the relevant application information and essay questions to me rather than send it by snail mail.
Tim Lee wrote about our internship program in April:
In a lot of organizations, the interns are treated like slave labor. They're chained to a photocopier, and they get little or no contact with the real decision-makers in the organization. The Show-Me Institute is different. Our interns spend the vast majority of their time doing research and writing. Our current intern, Steve Bernstetter, had no less than three op-eds in the Saint Louis Business Journal this semester, as well as the opportunity to do an in-depth research project. Because there are fewer than a dozen people in the office, our interns get the opportunity to work closely with almost everyone on staff. That means you get an in-depth understanding of how a think tank works, including editing and publishing, event planning, and travel around the state.
