Roosevelt Institute Summer Interns 2017

Applications for Summer 2017 internships closed on March 9, 2017. Thank you for your interest in the Roosevelt Institute. 



Until economic and social rules work for all Americans, they’re not working. Inspired by the legacy of Franklin and Eleanor, the Roosevelt Institute reimagines the rules to create a nation where everyone enjoys a fair share of our collective prosperity. We are a 21st century think tank bringing together multiple generations of thinkers and leaders to help drive key economic and social debates and have local and national impact. We advance this mission through the work of our staff, fellows, and network of students and alumni.

Roosevelt is taking on some of the biggest issues facing our economy and society and putting out bold, cutting-edge research and policies. Our work ranges from thinking about how we restructure the world of finance to changing the way colleges and universities invest in their communities. In the past two years we released a bold agenda to rewrite the rules of the American economy which the Washington Post called a new manifesto for fighting inequality; framed the issues of financialization and corporate short-termism and issued a policy agenda that influenced the presidential race and key lawmakers; and crowd-sourced a blueprint for young people’s policy priorities. In July 2016, we were profiled by the New York Times Magazine for our role in advancing progressive policy change.


We are a forward-thinking, fast paced organization looking to hire enthusiastic and passionate interns.  Roosevelt is accepting Summer 2017 intern applications. We are looking to hire interns in the Think Tank, Network and Communications departments to work with staff on various tasks. Roosevelt is committed to providing undergraduate students with an experience that pushes them to reimagine the rules and help Roosevelt create a nation where everyone enjoys a fair share of our collective prosperity.

Interns will work in the New York or Chicago offices. Students will receive a $3,000 stipend for the 8 week program.
