Capital Research Center hosts the Henry Haller internship program during all times of the year: fall, spring and summer semesters. For more about CRC, see our mission statement.
An intern at CRC will work in our research or communications departments. We publish four monthly newsletters: 1) Organization Trends critically examines tax-exempt “advocacy” groups (e.g. groups like the American Association of Retired Persons or Ralph Nader’s group Public Citizen or one of the environmental groups); 2) Foundation Watch looks at grant makers like the Ford and Rockefeller foundations (there are 60,000 foundations in the U.S.); 3) Labor Watch looks at labor union activities; and 4) Compassion & Culture highlights the accomplishments of small, local and faith-based charities.
CRC Research Interns assist our staff in various ways:
- Collect data for our online database of nonprofits and foundations.
- Author independent research work for CRC publications.
- Assist senior staff members with articles and op-eds.
- Help promote CRC publications.
We have a staff of ten, including six editors, in our offices, which occupy a historic nineteenth century townhouse in the Dupont Circle area of Washington, D.C. We encourage interns to undertake an independent writing project on a nonprofit issue that CRC can publish. We believe this is one of the most important and worthwhile intern activities.
We look for interns who:
- Are interested in research and writing on public policy issues
- Would like to develop an interest in the nonprofit sector
- Have a conservative and/or free market perspective
- Are computer literate
