Join the OK Policy team as a paid intern this Summer!

OK Policy is now accepting applications for paid, part-time or full-time internships in our Tulsa office during the Summer 2020 semester! We are a non-partisan think tank working to promote adequate, fair, and fiscally responsible policies and expanded opportunity for all Oklahomans. 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 Sunday, April 19.

This summer, the following internship opportunities are available:

  • Public Policy Internship (Tulsa office) – 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 to coordinate events, and help with office administration. 
  • Open Justice Oklahoma Data Internship (Tulsa office) – OJO interns are expected to assist in the collection, cleaning, and analysis of criminal justice data, conduct research and write blog posts on criminal justice-related issues, and help with office and program administration.

If you wish to apply for both, please submit a separate application for each.

Interns are paid $11 per hour.

Internships are open to both current undergraduate and graduate students (must have completed a minimum of 24 hours of college credit) and to those who completed their degree programs no earlier than the fall 2019 semester. Participants are chosen through 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.
