OK Policy is now accepting applications for paid, part-time internships in its Tulsa and Oklahoma City offices during the Spring 2020 semester! We are a non-partisan think tank working to promote adequate, fair, and fiscally responsible funding of public services and expanded opportunity for all Oklahomans by providing timely and credible information, analysis, and ideas. If you’re looking to be part of a team that’s fighting to make Oklahoma better for all Oklahomans, this might be the place for you. The deadline to apply is 5:00 pm on Monday, November 11th.
This spring we have internship opportunities in three areas. If you wish to apply for more than one, please submit a separate application for each:
- Communications Internship (Tulsa) – Communications interns may be asked to do things such as designing for print and the web, helping with video and audio production, collecting and formatting data, maintaining and updating media lists, assisting with social media needs, supporting OK Policy events, or compiling relevant press clips.
- Public Policy Internship (Oklahoma City) – For the spring semester, the public policy internship will be focused primarily on state budget and tax policy. Policy interns may be asked to write blog posts on state policy issues, help with data collection and formatting, assist with our advocacy efforts, help coordinate events, and assist with office administration.
- Legislative Advocacy Internship (Oklahoma City) – Advocacy interns should expect to spend the majority of their time at the Capitol or in meetings with other advocacy leaders. They may be asked to attend events or meetings, distributing materials to legislative offices, table at OK Policy and community events, and communicating relevant information and updates to staff in the Tulsa office.
Interns in our offices are paid $11 per hour, and we are happy to cooperate with your institution’s requirements for academic credit.
Internships are open to current undergraduate students with junior or senior status, graduate students, and recent graduates (Spring 2019 or later). Participants are chosen by a competitive application process aimed at selecting students with strong academics, robust community involvement, and a clear interest in the study and practice of public policy.
To apply for an internship with us, fill out the online application no later than 5:00 p.m., Monday, November 11th. All applicants will be contacted regarding interviews no later than December 3rd.
