Be a Fall Intern at the Tax Foundation

September 28, 2011

Fall has arrived and with the new season we’re looking for more students to join us as fall interns to help us advance good tax policy.

We offer a unique internship program designed to introduce undergraduate and graduate students to tax policy principles, and apply them in assessing and advancing public policy. Working directly with our staff in various areas of tax policy, interns gain valuable professional experience and learn about all aspects of our operation.

While data entry and routine tasks are part of the internship, the majority of the work is substantive. Interns are afforded flexibility to attend events, lectures, and seminars around Washington, D.C. As a non-partisan research institution, we encourage interns to develop a broad sense of our principles and find innovative ways to contribute to our mission.

Our policy internships are unpaid but we are happy to work with outside fellowship programs to host interns, and to assist in arranging for school credit. We are also offering a paid communications internship and a paid development internship.
