Information Session Scheduled for Missouri Government Internship

An informational meeting about the Missouri Government Internship will take place at 5 p.m. Sept. 25 in the West Campus Suites Multipurpose Room.

The full-time Missouri Government internship offers a hands-on opportunity for students to intern at the Capitol in Jefferson City, Mo., with a public official, legislator or state agency during the Spring 2014 semester. The program provides students an inside look at state government and the political process.

Interns receive a stipend of $2,500 and up to 15 hours of credit. Duties may vary based on each individual public official, however, typical duties include attending meetings and making reports, communicating with constituents, doing office and computer work, conducting research, assisting with committee hearings, writing speeches, editing printed materials, tracking and summarizing legislation and being on call to help with projects.

Students wishing to participate in the program are required to have a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit, a minimum of two semesters at Truman, a cumulative GPA of 2.75 and divisional approval.

No special coursework is required prior to the internship and all majors are encouraged to apply for the internship. Successful applicants will be of sound character and possess qualities that reflect positively upon themselves and the University.
