 If you are interested in making a genuine contribution to your Nation this election year, in an idealistic and positive environment -- located in the middle of a natural wonderland -- we would love to have you join our team.   

Our National Internship Program is available year-round at our uniquely-based research facilities at the Great Divide Ranch in southwest Montana. Here, current students and recent graduates join us for 10-weeks at a time (start date negotiable), and receive real work experience and scholarship funding which covers all living expenses. Our National Interns also enjoy the company of 40+ politically-minded young people, all living and working together, which makes for one exciting, eventful internship.    

Our National Internship Program provides students with unique practical and educational experiences. We seek interns who are genuinely interested in working to accomplish our goal of making factual, unbiased political information easily and freely accessible to all. The overriding qualification for securing an internship position is your willingness to commit 100% to the Project's goals and mission. To qualify for a Vote Smart internship you must meet the following:     

  1. Set aside political beliefs and be objective and non-partisan while working.
  2. Be in good standing with your university/school as a current student or alum.
  3. Commit to 10 consecutive weeks.
  4. Remember that our research facility is located in an extraordinarily beautiful but remote area. You will be expected to maintain the facility.
