Applications for The Truman Bootstrap Internship Award for 2017 are now available for undergraduates who wish to experience public service and the national policy process.
The award provides two undergraduates interested in government service with an eight to nine week immersion in the Washington, D.C. offices of the Missouri Congressional delegation or other appropriate offices.
The internship will be completed during the Summer Academic Session. Participants will have opportunities to connect with past Truman Center speakers such as Don Ritchie, Historian of the U.S. Senate, or Margaret Talev, Bloomberg News White House Correspondent. Interns will share quarters with interns from the other UM campuses and meet UM administrators who visit Washington during this time.
Serving as an intern in Washington can be an exciting and rewarding experience, involving oneself in the exciting and fast-paced daily life of Capitol Hill. Applications must be completed and submitted by 3 p.m. Dec. 1, 2016.
For complete details, visit Harry S. Truman Center for Governmental Affairs internships. If you have additional questions, contact Gayla Curtis or call 816-235-2720.

Keep an eye out for the Campus Climate Survey, which will open on October 4 and close on November 4, 2016.
We want to hear how you feel about the level of fairness, inclusion, and respect on campus. Your feedback will be used to create and support a thriving community for all.
Please plan on taking the survey in one sitting (15-20 minutes): because the survey is completely anonymous, you will not be able to stop and come back to it. At the end, you can choose to enter your name for prize drawings.
