Alaska high school seniors interested in working in the nation's capital and learning about the operations of Congress are encouraged to apply for this summer's annual intern program, sponsored by Sen. Frank Murkowski.
Murkowski is looking for 20 independent and mature graduating high school seniors who can take the initiative to make the most of their time in Washington, D.C.
Students are invited to apply for openings in either of two four-week sessions. Interns perform a variety of administrative and legislative duties in the senator's Washington office. At the same time, they get to attend lectures by prominent government officials, shadow the senator during his daily routine, and participate in tours and social events.
The sessions run from June 2 to June 30 and from July 7 to August 4. Interns will be housed in the dorms of George Washington University in northwest D.C., a short subway ride to the Capitol.
Students can pick up applications at their high school guidance counselor or principal's office or can contact the senator's office in Juneau or Washington. Applicants with questions should call Chris Eyler in Washington at 202-224-6665.
Information and applications are also available at the senator's web site: http//:murkowski.senate.gov.
