Students and friends of students should check out the excellent scholarships and internships from the Institute for Humane Studies. The deadlines are fast approaching (December 31 for the Humane Studies Fellowships and mid- to late-January for the summer internships). IHS is a great organization and involvement with their programs and their team can make an enormous difference for good in one’s life.
UPDATE: My colleague Greg Newburn has reminded me that the Cato Institute has a very fine internship program, as well. Besides the work part, it includes workshops on political thought, economic analysis, logic and argumentation, writing skills, public speaking, and more. So add that to your list of things for which to apply or to which to donate much needed funds.
