PAUL B. HENRY CONGRESSIONAL INTERNSHIP
The GVSU Department of Political Science is now accepting applications for the Henry Internship competition. The Henry Internship places a GVSU student – the “Henry Intern” – in the Washington, D.C., offices of one of Michigan’s U.S. Representatives or Senators during the spring/summer 2010 session. The Paul B. Henry Foundation pays a scholarship of $2,000 to defray the costs of travel and living expenses, and Henry Interns receive a tuition waiver for up to 6 credits.
ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible, students must have completed a minimum of 55 credits by the end of this semester (Winter 2010) and are expected to report about their experiences to the GVSU community during the 2010/11 academic year.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Please submit a resume, transcript, one recommendation letter, and an essay of up to 750 words addressing your reasons for seeking the internship, relevant experiences that prepare you for it, and how it advance your career and educational goals. Students may also identify a Senator or Representative with whom they would prefer to work (keep in mind that placement with that legislator is not guaranteed). Turn in completed applications to Prof. Kevin den Dulk, Political Science Department, ASH 1126 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
DEADLINE: February 15, 2010
