Capital Research Center accepts interns 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. An intern will also contribute to our websites GreenWatch, that provides information on the environmental movement, and EducationWatch that provides information on education groups.
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
