State Senator Elaine Bowers Seeks Interns for 2018 Legislative Session

Elaine BowersState Senator Elaine Bowers, a Republican from Concordia, said Monday that Kansas Legislature internships are available for the 2018 Legislative Session and applications are due December 20.

Internships will begin the week of January 8, the first day of the 2018 Legislative Session, and end in April. A mandatory Intern Orientation is held on the Thursday prior to the beginning of the legislative session on January 4.

Interns will assist Bowers with administrative, legislative and communications work, including that of Bowers' staff on the Senate Committee on the Elections, where she serves as Chairman.

Bowers said she encourages young Kansans who are interested in learning more about state government to apply.

"Interning in Kansas Legislative offices provide a unique opportunity for college students and new graduates to learn more about the Legislative Branch while gaining a valuable experience. The program is designed to teach and encourage today's young leaders, strengthen their understanding of the Legislative Branch, and prepare them for future public service opportunities. Internships in my offices are available to students in all areas of study," Bowers said.

Applicants can apply by downloading the application or apply online at www.kslegislature.org under the "Become a Legislative Intern" tab on the left.

For more information or further questions on becoming an intern please contact Senator Bowers at [email protected] or by phone at 785-243-3325 Extension #2.
