Throughout your internship with a partner organization, Stand Together Fellowships hosts virtual professional development sessions every Thursday from 1-5 pm ET, wherein you will be mentored by seasoned professionals as you craft a capstone project on the topic that matters most to you.  Interns will receive either a $5,500 or $3,300 stipend from Stand Together Fellowships depending on whether they are participating full-time (40 hours/week) or part-time (28 hours/week).
 
Successful candidates will interview with both our non-profit partner organizations and Stand Together Fellowships staff, so we strongly encourage you to apply in advance!

The mission of the Illinois Policy Institute is to make Illinois a place where every person can put down roots, thrive and achieve the American Dream. As the strongest voice for taxpayers in the state, we stand for ordinary Illinoisans who deserve a say in their government, but who have been ignored in favor of special interests for too long. We educate and engage Illinoisans from all walks of life with our best-in-class research, storytelling and messaging. Illinois is a place we should all be proud to call home. The Illinois Policy Institute is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) research organization.

The Illinois Policy Institute works for a state where:
·       People of all talents, interests and cultural backgrounds can find dignity in work and succeed with hard work and ingenuity.
·       Effective, efficient, honest and transparent government is accountable to taxpayers and residents in need – not special interests.
·       Businesses grow, flourish and create more jobs and opportunities.
·       Laws empower people – and limit the power of government.
·       Good education is available and attainable for all students and families.

The Illinois Policy Institute is seeking a Communications Intern to help promote original research and perspectives from the state's strongest taxpayer advocate, and support our mission to foster and maintain a positive brand image with media stakeholders.
