Meet Our Former Interns


Katie Poedtke

"My internship at the Manhattan Institute exposed me to some of today's most influential public policy thinkers and executors both in the office and at MI's many conferences and special events. "

Sam Goldman

"By giving me the opportunity to work closely with the fellows and staff who generate, articulate, and circulate ideas about real issues, working at MI gave me the tools I would go on to use in graduate school, as well as in writing for a general audience"
