    Words from past interns

    Past Fraser Institute interns have gone on to exciting careers in media, public policy, politics, academia and law, to name just a few. All have benefited from the rigorous approach to research that The Fraser Institute follows.

    Past interns have said:

    This is my second summer working at the Fraser Institute. These internships are a great opportunity for university students to do leading edge research with the guidance of articulate and intelligent policy analysts. I think the Fraser Institute internship program is among the top in Canada!
    - Mathew Curtis, Political Science and Economics, University of Toronto

    This is by far the most intellectually stimulating internship I have ever had.
    - Will Lymer, Political Science, Simon Fraser University

    This has been a remarkable experience. The internship gave me the opportunity to use the skills I had learned in university and apply them to real policy issues.
    - Chris Schafer, Political Science, Wilfrid Laurier University

    I would strongly recommend a Fraser Institute internship to any hard-working individual who’s (dissatisfied with the status quo and) passionate about moving the goalposts of the current and future debate about Canadian public policy. They will find this to be an unparalleled opportunity to further both their intellectual development and to lay the foundation of their future career path, whatever that may be.
    - Ian Vaculik, M.A., International Relations and History, University of Toronto

    The process of working closely with a senior policy analyst has provided me with invaluable experience in the public policy research arena.
    - Miriam Bixby, Economics, University of Toronto

    Working at The Fraser Institute was an immensely useful experience. It was both educational and stimulating to work in such an environment.
    - Andrew Zur, Law, University of Toronto
