College students to get up-close look at governmental process
(Oklahoma City, OK) Oklahomans for Responsible Government is proud to announce the start of an internship program that will offer college students the opportunity to work in several areas including communications, research and governmental relations.
“I was fortunate to be able to serve as an intern at the State Capitol during college, so I know how much it can help a student put what they’re learning into practice,” said Brian Downs, OFRG Executive Director.
Applications will be accepted through November 15thfor the first internship period which will run from January 15th through May 15th which includes most of the next legislative session. Two internships will be awarded with the winners notified by December 1st. Application forms are being sent to area universities and are also available online at www.ofrg.org <http://www.ofrg.org/> .
“The work we do at OFRG spans a wide range of interest for college students,” said Downs, “and our small staff means that interns will benefit directly from our experience in public relations, communications and state government policy.”
OFRG plans on having three internship periods per year, coinciding with the spring and fall semesters and the summer break.
