We facilitate internship and service-learning opportunities for students with our partner development NGOs in Ecuador in the areas of health, education, microfinance, agriculture, education, and sustainable tourism, among others.

Internship with the IRS

Application deadline: Wednesday April 22.

The Washington Center is seeking applicants for internship opportunities with the Internal Revenue Service in Florence, Kentucky for summer 2009. An internship with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) would provide students with substantial financial assistance as well as housing in Florence, KY for the duration of the internship. For priority consideration at the IRS, students need to submit materials by Wednesday April 22, 2009. After that date, applicants will be considered on a space-available basis.

This program gives interns the opportunity to develop skills, make professional contacts, build their resumes and explore future career opportunities within the IRS. Students will need to commit to 10-weeks at the agency, beginning in late May.

With the IRS, students are given a lot of leverage to make their own projects and pursue their own interests. Work will be substantive in nature; the exact tasks will vary by major and interest area.

Applicants must:

* be U.S. citizens.

* have a 3.5 GPA or above.

* be enrolled as a junior or senior undergraduate student in fall 2009.

Desired Majors: Humanities, History, Political Science, Communications, Business, Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, Finance, Liberal Arts, and other related majors.

Compensation: Interns will receive financial assistance covering the cost of housing and will also be awarded a bimonthly stipend. Those who do not need housing in Florence will have their stipends adjusted accordingly.

Application Procedures: Send a resume, a short statement of interest and an unofficial transcript to The Washington Center's Office of Federal Relations at federalrelations@twc.edu by Wednesday April 22.

With any questions about the IRS opportunities available through The Washington Center, please contact Danielle Gaquin at danielle.gaquin@twc.edu or (202)238-7906.
