Apply for an Internship

Sagamore offers the unique opportunity for high achieving college students to participate in the life of a public policy think tank and to learn firsthand about “applied research.” Interns can gain experience in areas such as civil society, education reform, national security, new energy, economic development, foreign aid, global trade and urban planning among others.

Internships are available for spring, summer, fall and winter sessions. The summer program, however, is the most robust. 

Interns are expected to offer 3 days a week amounting to at least 12 hours per week for the entire session. 

Availability of positions is determined by the needs of the office.

  1. A cover letter explaining why you are interested in the program and what topic(s) you wish to research
  2. A current resumé
