Ronald Reagan Fellows Internship & Law Clerk Program
Goldwater Institute
Phoenix, AZ
www.goldwaterinstitute.org

Deadline to apply: August 19, 2014

Start date:  Fall, 2014

Salary: $625 per month

Description:
An important part of the Goldwater Institute's mission is to equip young people with the knowledge and skills required to advance the free market ideals championed by President Reagan. Each year, the Institute pursues this goal by offering college students and recent graduates the opportunity to participate in the Ronald Reagan Fellows Internship Program.

Through policy research, staff mentoring, seminar attendance, event participation and administrative assistance, Ronald Reagan Fellows gain a foundational understanding of the classical liberal principles that shaped Reagan's presidency. They also gain first-hand knowledge of how those principles relate to current public policy, and how organizations like the Goldwater Institute shape public policy at both local and national levels.

Fellows are selected each fall, spring and summer semesters. A minimum of 24 hours per week is required during the spring and fall semesters. All summer interns are expected to work 40 hours per week. The program offers a modest stipend.

Many Goldwater Institute interns have chosen to attend graduate school to study law, economics, or public policy. Others have gone on to assume policy research positions in the nation's capitol. The Institute has also hired interns as full-time employees.

Responsibilities:
To ensure exposure to both classical liberal principles and the operational aspects of a public policy research organization, Fellows are placed in one of three department areas: policy, communications, or special events and fundraising. Policy Fellows can expect to help policy analysts conduct research. Communications Fellows assist the communications team with a variety of tasks, including helping place opinion columns in newspapers, updating the website, and other special projects. Special Events and Fundraising Fellows can expect to assist the fundraising and events team with mailings, event planning and staffing, and donor outreach. Additionally, the Goldwater Institute hires one journalism student per semester to work with its investigative reporter. During the application process candidates should list their department preferences and every effort will be made to match Fellows with their first choice.

Additional application materials required:
Cover letter (include explanation of interest and availability), resume, two references or letters of recommendation, and answers to the following questions (200 words maximum per question:

1. What do you think is the proper role of government in a free society, and how did you arrive at this view?
2. What book, speech, event or similar item has been most influential in your philosophical development?
3. What do you hope to gain from participating in the Goldwater Institute's Ronald Reagan Fellows Internship Program?

HOUSE AND SENATE INTERNSHIPS, FALL 2014

In the Washington, DC offices, internships run throughout the fall, spring, or summer semesters for college students. Although most internships in congressional offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' schedules and they may be willing to work with candidates available only part-time, but generally run 9:00 am to 6:00 pm when Congress is in session, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm when not in session.

In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. They may be asked to answer phones, run errands, give Capitol tours, enter data, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings, and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House; tasks vary from office to office. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.

Preference is typically given to applicants who have some connection with the congressman's state (i.e. attended school, grew up in, currently resides in the respective state, etc). We strongly encourage you to consider applying to states to which you have a connection.

Applicants are more likely to be selected by legislators within the respective applicant's state. If you would like to apply to an office not listed, please email jobs@yaliberty.org with the name of the legislator for whom you would like to work, along with your resume and a cover letter.
