Application information for NAWG’s 2010 summer internship is now available online, with all submissions due by Friday, April 16.

Interns in the NAWG office on Capitol Hill get an up-close look at how the federal government functions and policy is made through work with government affairs staff.

Typical tasks for a NAWG intern include researching and drafting letters and testimony; attending hearings and meetings with staff or independently; writing articles for the NAWG newsletter; and doing some administrative work.

The selected intern will be at NAWG from approximately May until August 2010, depending on his or her school schedule.

Though he or she will be responsible for all living costs during the internship, the selected intern will be considered a temporary employee and paid an hourly wage.

Applicants should be juniors or seniors in college and interested in pursuing agriculturally-related careers after graduation. Preference will be given to applicants from states with NAWG-affiliated state wheat grower associations.
