WASHINGTON — A Sunflower State lawmaker said he has summer 2014 openings for interns at both his Washington and Kansas offices.

“Congressional internships offer Kansas students a great opportunity to learn about Congress and the legislative process,” U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., said Monday. “I hope to give Kansans an opportunity similar to the one I had serving in a congressional office years ago.”

An internship in Moran’s office — either legislative or communications — provides a unique opportunity to work closely with Senate staff on behalf of the state of Kansas, Moran’s office said in a press release.

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. Applicants for a communications internship should possess exceptional writing and communication skills, knowledge of AP style, experience in digital media and follow current events closely. While preference is given to Kansas residents, students from all states are encouraged to apply.

The application deadline for summer 2014 internships is March 1. Applications can be obtained and completed under the “Services” section of Moran’s website at www.moran.senate.gov
