Students: Apply to Work at the Show-Me Institute This Summer!
The deadline to apply to be a Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow — a program that includes two weeks of seminars about the philosophy of liberty 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 Monday, Jan. 31. If you’d like to work with the Show-Me Institute this summer, the summer fellow program is your best bet.
If you’re debating whether you should apply, take a look at some of the highlights that Caitlin Hartsell, our Koch Fellow from 2009, produced during her time working here for the eight-week program (and later, as a Show-Me Institute research assistant):
- Op-ed: What Does the State Income Tax Cost Missourians?
- Report: NorthSide Project Passes Board of Aldermen
- Op-ed: Filling the Cavities in Missouri’s Dental Care
- Op-ed: Well-Intentioned Autism Bill Also Carries Negative Consequences
- Speech: A Panel on the Best and Worst of the 2010 Legislative Session
- Video Production: Show-Me Institute Free-Market Field Trip No. 3: Ticket Scalping
- Show-Me Daily: 92 blog entries
Here are more highlights from our 2008 Koch Fellow, Matt Simpson:
- 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
This just scratches the surface of all the research that they, 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 the Jan. 31 deadline, it may be too late.
