Applications are now being taken for the Legislative internship program for spring 2015 in the Kansas Legislature. Students can get applications at http://www.washburn.edu/academics/college-schools/arts-sciences/departments/political-science-public-administration/internships/application.html,
email Dr. Beatty at [email protected] for an application, or pick up one in the Political Science office, HC 215. The deadline for the applications is November 7 for the paid internships and November 28 for the unpaid internships. Some of the internships are paid and students can receive course credit by taking one of the Political Science internship classes or the HN 202 class. Note that the internship program is open for all majors.
Along with many students over the past few years learning a lot about the legislative process via the program, the internships have also proven quite valuable for certain of our students who have parlayed the experience into jobs and campaign opportunities with members of the state legislature.
