Application Deadline: June22nd 2016

Are you a college student or recent high school or college graduate? A seasonal internship at ARI is an ideal opportunity for you to develop your professional skills, resume and network, while studying Ayn Rand’s ideas.

You’ll work at the Ayn Rand Institute for 10 weeks (summer) or 14 weeks (fall and spring), gaining experience contributing to programs and projects matched to your interests. Additionally, you’ll engage in a course of study tailored to your familiarity with Rand’s writings and philosophy, and may participate in educational activities such as the student program at ARI’s annual Objectivist summer conference.

Through ARI’s partnership with the Koch Internship Program and Koch Fellow Programs, you’ll receive a stipend of up to $4,500 or $6,300, vastly expand your network of professional contacts and receive valuable career and intellectual training.

Are you interested in Objectivism and intrigued by the work of the Ayn Rand Institute? Apply today to be a seasonal intern at ARI’s offices in Southern California or in the Washington, DC, area. You’ll gain real-world professional experience working on a range of projects supporting the Institute, and engage in educational activities tailored to your knowledge of Rand’s ideas and your own research interests.

Fall, spring and summer internships (ten to fourteen weeks) at ARI are offered through a partnership with the Koch Internship Program (KIP) and Koch Fellow Programs (KFP) of the Charles Koch Institute. KIP and KFP connect aspiring interns with organizations that promote free societies, and provide additional professional training and networking opportunities that supplement the internship experience at ARI.
