The Manhattan Institute internship program provides talented undergraduates with a unique work experience at a leading right-of-center
think tank. MI brings free market perspective to key domestic policy issues, including budget and fiscal issues, energy,
health care, education, and culture. Interns are given broad exposure to our work by contributing directly to various MI departments.
Responsibilities include editing, administrative tasks, and some research. Interns are matched according MI's needs, the applicants past

Interns regularly attend Manhattan Institute events, including

Fall and spring semester internships are part-time for a minimum of 20 hours a week. Summer internships are full-time
for 10-12 weeks adjustable to the student's academic schedule.
