TOPEKA — The deadline for college juniors, seniors, graduate and law students to apply for the Kansas Governor’s Internship Program has been extended.  Students have until Aug. 30 to submit their applications for the fall internship program.

The program is designed to give students hands-on experience of working in state government and allow students the opportunity to contribute to improving the State of Kansas, according to Gov. Sam Brownback’s office.

The fall internship program runs from September to December, and students are expected to work at least 16 hours per week. Some internships may be paid. All interested students must submit an internship application from the governor’s website, along with a current resume, signed consent form, two letters of recommendation, a statement of interest and an optional writing sample.
