Great Opportunities for young adults interested in Policy!!! OK Policy is pleased to announce two exciting opportunities for Oklahoma college students.

Students working with OK Policy have a wide range of opportunities to conduct research, write blog posts, and contribute to OK Policy projects and events. We invite all interested candidates to apply; the deadline for both programs is Friday, August 28th. Fall Internship Students are encouraged to apply for a paid part-time internship during the fall of 2015. Interns will be expected to work between 10 and 20 hours per week, depending on their schedules and availability. The position will be based in our Tulsa office, with occasional opportunities to work from home or school. Eligible students should have completed at least four semesters of college coursework or be pursuing a graduate degree.

Research Fellowship OK Policy invites graduate students to apply to be part of our third class of Research Fellows for 2015-16. The Research Fellowship program is intended to support top-performing graduate students at Oklahoma universities who are conducting promising public policy research and to provide them an opportunity to communicate their research towards a broader public audience. Students in any academic discipline who are: a) actively enrolled in a graduate program at an Oklahoma university in the fall of 2014, or b) residing in Oklahoma while completing a graduate program out-of-state, are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to students whose research addresses public policy issues of direct importance to Oklahoma. Click here for more information on the Research Fellow program and for instructions on how to apply. The deadline for applying to both programs in Friday, August 28th. Students wishing to be considered for both an internship and Fellowship should apply separately.
