The Kansas Secretary of State Internship Program

The Kansas Secretary of State Internship Program is designed to provide college students and recent graduates with work experience to complement their academic studies and provide first-hand understanding of state government.

Awarding academic credit for an internship is at the discretion of your college or university. We will assist you in providing appropriate information as requested by your college or university. Arrangements for accreditation should be made prior to the start of your internship.

Students interested in participating in the Kansas Secretary of State Internship Program must submit a resume; a brief personal statement addressing their goals for the internship, areas of interest and desired competencies; and college or university requirements.
