Foundation Summer Internship Spots Still Available

by Michael Tasselmyer / /

Looking for an opportunity? Hoping to find out what really goes on in government? Betting you can make a difference for the future of the free market? The National Taxpayers Union Foundation's Summer Program might be your ticket to a promising career in policy research or communications!

As an Associate Policy Analyst, you will meet the movers and shakers of the Washington, DC nonprofit political scene while developing the skills it takes to thrive in the ever-changing world of government spending, taxes, and long-term solutions to America's mounting fiscal problems. We won't hand you a coffee order or put your desk at the copy machine. Analysts get real legislation and the expectation to research their impact on the wallets of taxpayers. It's an experience, not a homework assignment.

Writing about the issues facing Americans is also a key part of the program. Our Associate Policy Analysts' letters and opinion pieces have appeared in publications including The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Times. Past interns have gone on to earn PhDs and MBAs, work on Capitol Hill, and excel in the free market nonprofit community.

Did we also mention that NTU Foundation is just outside of Washington, DC on the Metro line? We're only ten minutes away from other influential institutions, major universities, and the heart of the federal government.

Details: NTUF's policy research is centered on the federal budget and government programs. We work hard to educate the public on what spending our elected officials are pushing for. If you're looking for a typical internship, this program is not for you. Associate Policy Analysts are expected to score legislation, write blog and newsletter articles, and come up with insightful research opportunities.
