About D.C. Owls
The D.C. Owls internship program provides students with a valuable opportunity to live in our nation’s capital and work with a member of congress, a congressional committee, or an executive branch office. Day-to-day tasks may vary based on placement but will likely include constituent services, research, attendance at committee hearings and briefings, and more.
Scholarships are available for select students interested in participating in the
internship program during the Fall, Spring, or Summer semester. These scholarships
are awarded in the form of a stipend and are intended to assist interns with living
arrangements and other matters while in D.C. Those students selected to receive the
D.C. Owls scholarship are still expected to submit their own applications for internships
based on academic or personal preference. Only after an internship has been secured
will those students be awarded the stipend.
To apply for the D.C. Owls scholarship, students must complete the application at the link below. Submission of a resume and cover letter is required. An interview with KSU faculty and staff may be requested following the receipt of application materials.
Juniors and seniors of all majors may apply for the scholarship. However, students must have a minimum GPA of 2.5. Course credit may also be attained as part of the internship program. Though, credit hours may differ based on a student’s program of study.
