The Hillman Internship

Our premiere student program.

Hillman Interns engage in meaningful work, have thoughtful discussions about the ethics issues they are the most passionate about, and develop lasting relationships with each other and with members of the Prindle Institute staff. Past Hillman Interns have gone on to become professors, doctors, U.S. Senate staffers, and policy experts. Contact Marko Mavrovic (markomavrovic@depauw.edu) with any questions about the internship or the application process.
