Tax Foundation Summer 2016 Internship and Clerkship Deadlines Approaching!

March 25, 2016

Each summer, students join us at the Tax Foundation for our internship program designed to introduce 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. We bring in expert speakers to interact with our interns, and each intern is assigned a staff mentor. Interns receive a stipend of $920 per half-month, or are unpaid if arranging college credit with their university. Part-time interns receive a pro-rated stipend. We accept internships for our federal modeling program, state policy, communications and outreach, and development and fundraising.

The deadline for our summer 2016 program is April 1, so apply soon!

Similarly, each term we accept a law student for our clerkship program, with responsibilities including substantive research, authoring, and editing assistance in preparing amicus curiae briefs to appellate courts and special reports on important legal and economic issues relating to tax. Clerks have also authored pieces for publication. Full-time summer clerks receive a stipend to cover transportation and housing costs of up to $1,040 per half-month. We are considering applicants on a rolling basis, so apply soon!
