Transcend Together is a non-profit, public policy think tank headquartered in Utah. We are conservative advocates for those who are poor and disadvantaged. Our mission is to lift every person in need to prosperity and self-reliance through sound public policy that affirms each person’s human dignity and allows for every opportunity to flourish.

We are offering an internship for students or recent graduates for the fall of 2021. We prefer graduate students, but college students are welcome to apply. Interns will gain practical experience in all aspects of the organization, including policy research and writing, legislation, public outreach, and fundraising.


Conduct research in policy areas such as intergenerational poverty, self-reliance, employment, housing, and assisting disadvantaged groups like former prisoners, refugees, and ethnic and racial minorities

Write research reports, op-eds, blog articles, and more

Attend legislative committee meetings and assist in the legislative process

Reach out to the public and help gain allies through social media and other means

Identify fundraising opportunities and assist in the grant-writing process

Other duties as needed and assigned


A strong interest in our mission and in public policy

Exceptional research and writing skills

An ability to communicate effectively with others

Very high attention to detail

A strong desire to learn and improve

Experience in public policy research and writing (preferred but not required)


The internship is unpaid but will provide meaningful experience and will be a great résumé builder; you may earn academic credit if your institution approves it

The internship can be full-time or part-time, and the hours are flexible; the start and end dates are also flexible

You will work remotely and will need your own computer and any other equipment needed to perform the job
