Sen. Moran Now Accepting Applications For Summer 2014 Internships

KSCB News - February 10, 2014 8:46 pm

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today announced he is accepting applications for congressional internships in his Washington, D.C., and Kansas offices for the summer of 2014.

“Congressional internships offer Kansas students a great opportunity to learn about Congress and the legislative process,” Sen. Moran said. “I hope to give Kansans an opportunity similar to the one I had serving in a congressional office years ago.”

An internship in Sen. Moran’s office – either legislative or communications – provides a unique opportunity to work closely with Senate staff on behalf of the state of Kansas. Legislative 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. Communications internships provide a unique opportunity to learn about how political communications and the legislative process intersect, and gain practical knowledge about the inner workings of a fast-paced press office.

The intern program is open to qualified undergraduate and graduate students – or recent graduates – who have strong interest in public service and government and have achieved academic excellence. Applicants for a Communications internship should possess exceptional writing and communication skills, knowledge of AP style, experience in digital media, and follow current events closely. While preference is given to Kansas residents, students from all states are encouraged to apply.

The application deadline for summer 2014 internships is March 1, 2014. Applications 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 their interest in public service and detailing a policy issue of personal importance. . Please submit required materials to: [email protected]

For questions, please contact Sen. Moran’s office at [email protected] or call 202-224-6521 and request to speak with the Intern Coordinator.
