White House taking bids for internships
The White House is accepting applications for its spring internships until 10:59 p. m. CDT on Sept. 8. The program is open to college students and those who have graduated within the past two years. Veterans who have high school diplomas or the equivalent are also eligible if they served within the past two years.
Americans, regardless of their political affiliations, are welcome to apply. “Political preference” is not a deciding factor, according to the White House website, but interns must be “dedicated to the ideals and mission of the White House.”
Applicants are asked to answer several questions, including: Why are you committed to supporting President Donald J. Trump’s administration?
What Trump administration policy has resonated with you most? Why?
What do you hope to achieve by participating in the White House Internship Program?
Successful applicants will begin hearing from the White House on Nov. 17, the website states. The internship runs from Jan. 10-April 27.
