The Rio Grande Foundation (RGF), New Mexico's premier public policy education and research center, seeks ambitious college-level students who would like to sharpen their writing, debating, researching, media and event-organizing skills and learn more about state and local government this summer. If you have a strong interest in political science, public policy, economics, business, history, English, journalism or communications, we encourage you to apply for a RGF internship today.
The ideal intern has above-average writing and/or editing skills and a basic understanding of current events; knowledge of contemporary New Mexico history is helpful. A valued quality is an appreciation for – and understanding of – individual liberty, the free market, property rights, and limited government. Intern responsibilities may include: writing for publication, light public policy research, administrative tasks, editing RGF publications, and event planning.
Internship hours are flexible; they can be tailored to fit school, athletic and work schedules. Interns will receive a stipend depending on the level of time committed to the Foundation; RGF will also work with those students who wish to receive academic credit for their internship. Additionally, RGF offers its assistance in obtaining internships with market-oriented organizations in Washington, DC and around the country. Further, the Foundation will provide information about seminars and scholarship opportunities open to students interested in the principles of liberty.
