(Washington) – U.S. Senator John Barrasso, R-Wyo., is currently accepting applications for an in-state internship pilot program for spring 2008. The program, which lasts four months, is designed to give Wyoming’s youth an insider’s look into the workings of the United States government.
“I am pleased to offer the Wyoming delegation’s first in-state internship,” Barrasso said. “This program is designed to allow students to live in Wyoming while they work in my office. I encourage all Wyoming students interested in this unique opportunity to apply.”
Interns have a wide range of responsibilities, including research, attending local events with Senator Barrasso, and other office duties.
Interns will be selected to work in Barrasso’s Casper or Cheyenne offices.
Part time positions are available and Senator Barrasso’s state offices will work out a schedule to fit around student’s classes.
Interns receive a monthly stipend and are responsible for their living expenses. The dates for the spring session are January 7th through May 16th.
Applicants are typically residents of Wyoming, in college, and are 21 years of age or older.
School credit may be obtained if university or college requirements are met.
Candidates should apply on-line. The application can be found on Senator Barrasso’s website, http://barrasso.senate.gov/public/, by choosing the "Students" tab on the left and then clicking on "Intern Program.” Applications should be mailed to 2201 Federal Building, Casper, WY 82601.
For more information, please contact Katharine Kunz in Senator Barrasso’s Casper office at 307-261-6413. The cut-off date for applications will be December 14th.
