Reason is now accepting applications for the 2009 Burton C. Gray Memorial Internship. The intern works 10 weeks during the summer in our Washington, D.C. office and receives a $5,000 stipend.

The job includes reporting and writing for Reason and Reason Online, and helping with research, proofreading, and other tasks. Previous interns have gone on to work at such places as The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, ABC News, and Reason itself.

To apply, send your résumé, up to five writing samples (preferably published clips), and a cover letter to:

Gray Internship

  1. Is this related to this item, For sale: assorted metal/plastic prisoner cages from the previous post?

  2. Intern at Reason!

    Thanks, but i’d rather be your eventual intern’s nemesis.

    Did anyone else read this as “Gay Internship”? Hey, this is Reason, after all.

  4. What I really need is a droid that understands the binary language of moisture vaporators.

  5. Don’t forget your kneepads!

  6. I am not interested in applying — really, trust me! — but I am curious about the demographics of former interns and the selection process. Have they all been young, straight out of college types? (Hard to believe unless the clips are mostly from college newspapers.) Are there any specific selection criteria you’d be willing to share with prospective applicants?

    There have been people I’ve considered recommending to apply for the internship from time to time, but I’ve usually refrained because on no particular basis other than my hunches it seemed to me they might be too old or might not have a clip file yet or whatever.

  7. I knew it! Gays aren’t born that way, they gotta do an internship first. Then do a year of residency before they’re allowed to wear assless chaps.

  8. Are there any specific selection criteria you’d be willing to share with prospective applicants?

    None you’d care to hear about. Just be sure to tell your friends not to drop the soap!

  9. Is there housing available for this internship like there are for the other Reason internships?

  10. Employers may look for students looking for internships in http://www.nuresume.com -a student career network where a number of students have already posted their jobs wanted ads and featured their online resume for future employers to see.

  11. When do we find out that we got it?

  12. Man I’d love to intern at reason! However, I don’t know how much use they would have for an illustration/painting major.

  13. Is it only $5,000 or can a beagle named Toby be thrown in too?

  14. I would urge my son to apply, but that “five writing samples, preferrably published” is a little daunting. I guess he’ll have to build up his resume some more first.

  15. Our motto here at Reason:

    Lasciate ogne speranza di pensiero independente, voi ch’intrate Qui!

  16. What is the response date!?

  17. Reason has gone downhill since the previous intern left.

    DRINK!
