GVSU Department of Political Science is now accepting applications for the Henry Internship competition. The Henry Internship places a GVSU student in the Washington, D.C., offices of one of Michigan’s U.S. Representatives or Senators during the spring/summer 2013 session. The Paul B. Henry Foundation pays a scholarship of $2,000 to defray the costs of travel and living expenses, and Henry Interns also receive a free tuition 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 2013) and are expected to report about their experiences to the GVSU community during the 2013/14 academic year.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Please submit a resume, transcript (unofficial is fine), 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 will 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. Paul J. Cornish, Political Science Dept., 1129 ASH (firstname.lastname@example.org).
DEADLINE: February 15, 2013
The Paul B. Henry Foundation is named in honor of the late Paul B. Henry, who served West Michigan in the House of Representatives from 1985-1993
