Washington DC Internships available

The Wildcat Interest Group is proud to announce that summer internship opportunities reserved for UK students still exist for the offices of Senator Rand Paul, Congressman Geoff Davis, Congressman Andy Barr, Congressman Hal Rogers and Congressman Brett Guthrie for summer 2013. “Wildcats in Washington” gives University of Kentucky students an opportunity to intern in D.C. and includes a $1,500 living stipend for those students selected through an application and interview process.

The remaining summer internships, open to all University of Kentucky students returning for fall semester 2013, require a one-page application sheet and corresponding Congressional Internship application of the Congressman to which a student applies. These documents and all additionally-required materials should be completed and submitted by noon (12pm) to the SGA office, 120 Student Center, by Wednesday, February 20th.  

Students who do not know their Congressional district should access Kentucky Voter Information Center to see their registration and district information (https://cdcbp.ky.gov/VICWeb/index.jsp).  Though length of internship varies, each position’s term ranges from four to six weeks.

Students deemed qualified will be notified for an interview with an impartial, unaffiliated selection committee within 2 business days following the application deadline. After interviews, one preferred and one secondary candidate will be recommended for selection to each respective office, at which point that office will award the summer position to one student. Those selected students will be eligible for a $1,500 living stipend upon accepting the Congressional office’s final offer and signing the Student Government Memorandum of Understanding.  Any questions regarding “Wildcats in Washington” should be directed to Jackie Anne Conley at j.a.conley@uky.edu.
