Paid Internship Opportunity for the Summer!
Last summer, I had the privilege of being a Koch Summer Fellow for the Show-Me Institute. It was a terrific experience, and I recommend it to anybody who is interested in public policy and liberty. The Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow Program flew me (and the other 81 fellows) to Washington, D.C., for a week at the beginning and end of the summer, where we listened to lectures about liberty, participated in career workshops, made group policy presentations, and had an overall good time.
For the other eight weeks of the program, I interned at at the Show-Me Institute in St. Louis. As a state-based organization, the Show-Me Institute gave me more opportunities to research and write about policy issues than I would have had at a larger national organization. There were also weekly deadlines for the KSFP program, writing op-eds and letters to the editor, and watching online lectures.
And why should you care about my summer internship experience?
