Generation Liberty Fellowships

More than 30 up-and-coming young leaders will be selected to attend the 2010 SPN Annual Meeting, Sept. 12-15 in Cleveland. This competitive fellowship, which covers travel, lodging and registration expenses, is open to: SPN members' interns (current and past); active members and alumni of Students For Liberty; and former SPN / IHS Charles G. Koch Summer Fellows. Why attend the SPN Annual Meeting? You would consider working for liberty at the state and local level; you relish the chance to meet more than 500 fantastic people; and, you have ideas to share about how to conduct youth outreach.







Internships with SPN Members

Internships are available with state-focused think tanks across the U.S., from Hawaii to Florida, Maine to Arizona. Visit spn.org/directory, click on your state of interest, and contact the institute there to learn about its intern program. Many think tanks offer stipends.


SPN / IHS Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow Program

This 10-week program is for college students and recent graduates who are passionate about liberty and free markets, and who would like to advance liberty at the state level. The program begins and ends with week-long career and policy seminars in Washington, D.C. In between, fellows complete an eight-week internship at a state-focused think tank. Fellows receive a $1,500 stipend and a housing allowance. This is a joint program sponsored by State Policy Network and the Institute for Humane Studies. For details, visit theihs.org/statepolicy. Note: The 2010 application deadline has passed.










Travel Grants to IHS or FEE Summer Seminars

Travel grants up to $500 are awarded to SPN members' interns, current and past, who attend a summer seminar organized by the Institute for Humane Studies or Foundation for Economic Education.

About SPN

State Policy Network is made up of free market think tanks - at least one in every state - fighting to limit government and advance market-friendly public policy at the state and local levels. SPN and our members make the Founders' vision for the American Republic a reality as the nation's only 50-state distribution network for market-oriented public policy ideas. Our programs advance and defend American liberty and free enterprise by assisting new start-up organizations, growing existing state think tanks, recruiting talent to the think tank industry, developing strategic partnerships, and promoting the free-market state movement.
