Last Call for Summer Fellows!
The deadline to apply to be a Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow — a program that includes two weeks of seminars at the Institute for Humane Studies in D.C., and eight weeks working as an intern with the Show-Me Institute here in Missouri — is rapidly approaching. Applications are due on Saturday, January 31.
We’re not yet sure whether we’ll be holding our regular summer internship program this year; it all depends on how many summer fellow applicants we accept. So, if you’d like to work with the Show-Me Institute this summer, the summer fellow program is your best bet for now.
If you’re debating whether you should apply, take a look at some of the highlights that Matt Simpson, our Koch Fellow from last summer, had from his time working here:
- Op-ed: Flood Relief Establishes Perverse Incentives
- Missourinet interview: Controversial proposal would deny government aid to flood victims
- Post-Dispatch blog citation: The flip side of flood aid
- Show-Me Daily: 30 blog entries
- Show-Me Quarterly: Front cover photo
Not bad for an eight-week internship here, eh? And that just scratches the surface of all the research that he, and our other interns, helped out with behind the scenes.
So, once again, if you’d like to have the chance to dive into Missouri public policy this summer, be sure to apply to be a Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow. After Saturday, it may be too late.
