Internship Opportunities

Internships represent an essential opportunity for Fellows to build skills, networks, and knowledge and have long paved the way for college students to gain real-world experience. They are also, increasingly, a direct pipeline to jobs after graduation. MKE Fellows pairs interns with Milwaukee and Wisconsin companies that offer paid internships that help Fellows gain necessary on-the-job experience, build professional contacts, and earn money.

What is the opportunity?

The Wisconsin Policy Forum is seeking applications for the Norman N. Gill and Todd A. Berry fellowships for the 2024-2025 academic year. Our fellows engage in research on key policy issues confronting state and local governments in Wisconsin. The positions are named in honor of Norman Gill and Todd Berry for their
long-term commitment to improving government decision making and quality of life in our state. Norman Gill was executive director of the Milwaukee-based Citizens Government Research Bureau (later the Public Policy Forum) for over 40 years, while Todd Berry headed the Madison-based Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance for more than 20 years. Those two organizations merged as the Wisconsin Policy Forum in 2018.

What they're looking for

We're looking to support two graduate students in Wisconsin with research projects on policy issues. The Gill fellow will focus on Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin, while the Berry fellow will focus on the state or local governments and school districts. The fellows will be part of the team, attend meetings and events, and receive a stipend of $8,500 for the academic year. We value diversity and encourage all to apply!

Application Process

Applying for a fellowship is a two-step process. The first step is to complete the application form and submit a Letter of Intent (LOI), which must identify the policy issue to be studied (please see list of potential research topics) and briefly describe your initial thoughts on the research methods and data sources you could use, the potential impact of the research, and a description of how your academic and career goals would be supported by participation in this fellowship program. The LOI should not be more than two pages. A resume or curriculum vitae must accompany the LOI. The deadline for submitting a LOI is March 1, 2024.

From those who submit LOIs, finalists will be selected and notified by March 15, 2024. Finalists will be invited to complete full applications, which must include a more detailed description of the research, (official or unofficial) transcripts of undergraduate and graduate studies, one academic or professional letter of support, and a writing sample. Full applications will be due by March 31, 2024. A telephone or video call also may be scheduled. The fellows will be chosen and notified by April 12, 2024. (Note: the final choice of candidates will require the final approval of the Forum’s Fellowship Committee, and the availability of committee members may shift our deadline slightly.)

Applicants are invited to propose a research topic of their own design or to choose from the list of possible topics. Proposals that address one of our core research areas – economic development, education, government finance, or social services – are strongly preferred.
