OK Policy staff and summer interns

OK Policy is now accepting student applicants for paid part-time internships during the fall of 2016. Interns will be expected to work between 10 and 20 hours per week, depending on their schedules and availability. The position will be based in our Tulsa office.

Interns have the opportunity to work as full members of the OK Policy team and participate in most activities of the organization. The work will involve assisting staff members as well as conducting independent research under guidance of staff. Most interns will author multiple blog posts on state policy issues such as poverty, economic development, health care, immigration, and other subjects.

Eligible students should have completed at least four semesters of college coursework or be pursuing a graduate degree. We are happy to cooperate with an institution’s requirements for academic credit.

To apply, please send a cover letter explaining your interest and qualifications, a resume or CV, and a writing sample to by Friday, August 26. Please include “Fall internship” in the subject line. Applicants will be contacted regarding interviews in early September.
