Internship in Washington available for Sac State students

Russell Preston

Students interested in working in Washington D.C. for a few months are encouraged to apply for the Congressional Internship Program, now open at Sacramento State through the Panetta Institute of Public Policy.

One student (junior or senior) from each of the 23 CSU campuses and Dominican and Santa Clara universities will be selected for the internship. Students have until Feb. 17 to submit their applications to Tahoe Hall, room 3054 and the fall program runs from Aug. 12 through Nov. 10.

The program includes a two-week orientation at the CSU Monterey Bay campus, as well as an 11-week internship in Washington D.C. The cost of academic fees and tuition, food, housing, air and ground transportation and a living stipend will be included.

Students can also earn up to 20 academic credits through attending the internship program and will be required to attend seminars, maintain a journal and write a 20-page research paper.
