WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran of Kansas announced Tuesday that he is accepting applications for congressional internships in his Washington, D.C., and Kansas offices for the 2012 fall semester.
“Congressional internships offer Kansas students a great opportunity to learn about Congress and the legislative process,” Sen. Moran said. “I hope to give Kansans a similar opportunity to serve in a Congressional office that I had years ago.”
An internship in Senator Moran’s office provides a unique opportunity to work closely with Senate staff on behalf of the state of Kansas. Interns will gain a better understanding of the legislative process in the U.S. Congress, and develop knowledge and professional skills valuable to future career pursuits.
The Intern Program is open to qualified undergraduate and graduate students who have strong interest in public service and government and have achieved academic excellence. While preference is given to Kansas residents, students from all states are encouraged to apply.
The application deadline for the fall 2012 semester is Friday, July 20, 2012. Application forms can be obtained and completed under the “Services” section of Sen. Moran’s website at www.moran.senate.gov. Applicants should submit a completed application form, resume, academic transcript, two letters of recommendation and a cover letter explaining the applicant’s interest in public service and goals of serving as an intern. Please submit required materials to: firstname.lastname@example.org
