We’re looking for spring interns

startup-photosWe are now accepting student applicants for paid, part-time internships focusing on research or advocacy during the spring of 2016.

Interns will be expected to work between 10 and 20 hours per week, depending on their schedules and availability. Research interns will be based in our Tulsa office, with occasional opportunities to work from home or school. Advocacy interns may be based in Tulsa or Oklahoma City. Please indicate your preference for one or the other track (if you have one) and preferred location if you choose the advocacy track in your cover letter.

Our interns are treated as full members of the OK Policy team, and you have the opportunity to gain experience in nearly all aspects of what we do. Intern tasks may include collecting data, conducting research, writing blog posts or reports on state policy issues, strategizing policy goals, coordinating volunteers, and helping to organize events on a wide range of topics.

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 of no more than 20 pages to jobs@okpolicy.org by Tuesday, December 22. Please include “spring internship” in the subject line.
