Each semester APSCUF (the Association of Pennsylvania State College and University Faculties) offers a paid internship in government and public relations for undergraduates attending a Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) university. The APSCUF internship is a great opportunity for a student who is interested in government, politics, public affairs, journalism, or communications. APSCUF interns must be professional, self-motivated, and skilled communicators. Recent interns have gone on to jobs in the legislature, lobbying, and the news media.
APSCUF is currently seeking a junior or senior in political science, communications, journalism, or a related field to serve as a government relations/communications intern at the state APSCUF office building in Harrisburg. The student internship must be for academic credit under the supervision of a PASSHE university faculty member. The successful applicant should have strong knowledge of government workings, as well as excellent oral and written communication skills. APSCUF will pay $10 per hour and interns are expected to work 35 hours each week, Monday-Friday.
The Summer 2013 internship begins May 20, 2013, and concludes August 16, 2013. Application deadline for the Spring 2013 internship is March 15, 2013.
