Internships

Student interns are at the core of the Martin Center’s work of improving higher education. Every semester, students join staff and scholar at the Martin Center for work and learn about higher education and free-market principles. Our interns write op-eds, research policy for our scholars, and contribute to our digital marketing efforts.

Martin Center internships are for undergraduates, recent graduates, graduate students, and law students who are committed to individual liberty, freedom of conscience, and the pursuit of truth. Past Martin Center interns have gone on to work at the Institute for Justice, Americans for Prosperity, the Leadership Institute, KIPP Public Charter Schools, and Young Americans for Liberty!

The Martin Center hosts research and marketing interns during spring, fall, and summer. Apply now to intern with the Martin Center next semester! (See below for application instructions.)
