Missouri Government Internship Info Meeting Sept. 12


An information meeting for the Spring 2018 Missouri Government Internship Program will take place at 4:30 p.m. Sept. 12 in McClain Hall 209.

The Missouri Government Internship Program provides students with the opportunity to gain meaningful experience in the fast-paced world of state politics. Selected interns will work as full-time staff assistants with a legislator or state public official. By interning at the Missouri Capitol, students will expand their knowledge of state government, build a diversified professional network and establish a basis for future professional positions.

Many former interns have subsequently taken positions as legislative directors, chiefs of staff, judicial clerks, policy analysts, lobbyists and public officials as a direct result of what they learned and the connections they made as interns.

The varying daily tasks throughout each office could include attending public hearings, completing legislative research, writing and editing published materials, constituent relations or assisting with basic office work.

The Truman State University Foundation provides selected interns with a stipend. Interested students should click here for more information and to view the internship application. Additional information will be presented at the meeting, Sept. 12. Questions can be directed to Candy Young or Heidi Templeton.

The deadline to apply is 12 p.m. Sept. 28. Interviews for the internship will take place Oct. 3-5.
