Internships are a unique opportunity for university students to contribute to the work of the Fraser Institute. Our internship program runs three times a year – in winter, summer, and fall, and our student interns work for four-month terms under the direct supervision of a policy or program staff person in one of Fraser Institute’s four offices.
Interested in spending a term working at the Fraser Institute? Our internship program offers university students and recent graduates the unique opportunity to learn first-hand what a think tank is all about.
We currently do not have any internship opportunities. Please check back in mid-January 2015 for our summer internship program.
