Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., today announced he is accepting applications for congressional internships in his Washington, D.C., Manhattan and Olathe offices for fall 2016.

“My first experience in Washington, D.C., was working as a congressional intern,” Moran said. “Internships offer Kansas students a great opportunity to learn about the legislative process and work on behalf of our great state.”

An internship in Moran’s office provides a unique opportunity to work closely with Senate staff on behalf of the state of Kansas. Legislative interns will gain a better understanding of the legislative process in Congress, and develop knowledge and professional skills valuable to future career pursuits.

The intern program is open to qualified undergraduate and graduate students — or recent graduates — who have strong interest in public service and government and have achieved academic excellence.

The application deadline for fall 2016 internships is July 1. Application forms can be obtained and completed under the “services” section of Moran’s website at www.moran.senate.gov. Applicants should submit a completed application form, resume, academic transcript, two letters of recommendation and a cover letter explaining the applicant’s interest in public service and goals of serving as an intern. Please submit required materials to: internships@moran.senate.gov

For questions, please contact Moran’s office at internships@moran.senate.gov or call (202) 224-6521 and request to speak with the intern coordinator.
