Hunt Internship Program
Young leaders are our future, and the Institute for Emerging Issues fosters North Carolina’s future public policy leaders through its Hunt Internship Program. The program provides a paid, yearlong internship to an NC State University undergraduate interested in a public policy career. The program was founded and endowed by Gov. James B. Hunt, Jr., and his wife Carolyn.
Applications are accepted in the spring.

I was met with kindness and support throughout this internship and I could not have asked for a better experience. Words can’t express the impact that this amazing group of coworkers has had on me.
