The Manhattan Institute for Policy Research is currently looking for interns to fill roles in our research, development, and communications
departments. We are also looking for an intern for our prestigious Adam Smith Society.
Students wishing to work in research should be detail oriented, focused, answer-seeking individuals who thrive on finding new information
and organizing it in a helpful way. We are specifically looking for students interested in energy, higher education, or healthcare policy.
Students wishing to intern in development should be capable of doing prospect research and translating that into excel. They should have
strong people skills and be interested in learning the relationship-building skills needed for a job in fundraising. This is a great internship
for students who are interested in all of MI’s issue areas or who want to learn about non-profit or think-tank management.
Students wishing to intern in communications and marketing should be excited about the ideas and mission of the Manhattan Institute – and how
to best promote them. Successful interns are usually creative, ambitious, and excellent at writing. Tasks might include anything from
copy-editing and press promotion, to social media and graphic design.
The Adam Smith Society is looking for an intern with strong creative talent who can help with both graphic design and social media
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.
All questions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Students wishing to apply should send an application form, resume, cover letter and a letter of recommendation to
email@example.com. The cover letter should explain the student's
education, work, other activities and future goals as they relate to an internship at the Manhattan Institute. In other words—why
you and why the Manhattan Institute?
Please indicate on your application if you have a particular interest or background in (1) Fundraising, (2) Communications
(Press/Social Media), or (3) Policy Research. Because there are only a few intern positions, students will not be assigned to work
exclusively in a specific area.
