Dole Internship Assistance Program

Flat Leader

Summer DIAP award winner, Erik Radowski, took Flat Leader with him to his internship at the Ford Museum in Michigan.

The Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics has established a program to provide financial assistance to students at the University of Kansas in their pursuit of careers in public service, politics, museum/archival studies or related fields. Financial assistance is available to offset the travel and living expenses associated with an internship. The Internship Assistance Program is open to all eligible University of Kansas students. The Dole Institute of Politics welcomes applications from all majors and without regard to race, gender, or ethnicity. While the Internship Assistance Program is open to all eligible University of Kansas students enrolled in the semester immediately prior to or immediately following the internship period, preference and first priority is given to students who are active members of, and in good standing with, the Dole Institute of Politics Student Advisory Board (SAB). To join the SAB, students may contact the Dole Institute at any time during the school year.

Applications are welcome on a rolling basis and will be considered on their merits.

Applications for unpaid internships may receive an amount greater than those with paid internships. Campaign internships are not eligible for consideration. To view all eligibility guidelines, please view the full application above.

The Dole Institute Intern Assistance Program is made possible through the generosity of Chuck and Diane Frickey and the Friends of the Dole Institute.
