On Path to Public Service

Published: Jan 16, 2014
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 16, 2014) — For students seeking an education to prepare them for a career in public service, the University of Kentucky's Martin School of Public Policy and Administration is among the best in the country.  The Martin School continues to build on its strong tradition of preparing its master's and doctoral students for positions of leadership in both public service and the private sector.

 

In the most recent U.S. News and World Report rankings, the Martin School is ranked 16th overall nationally and ranked No. 2 in the nation for its public finance and budgeting program.  Its program in public policy analysis is ranked 20th.

 

Alumni of the school are found in positions of leadership around the state and across the country, including in our nation's capital.

 

If public service in Washington, D.C. is a student's goal, the prestigious Henry Clay Internship in Public Policy is a fantastic opportunity afforded select students from Kentucky colleges and universities.  The Kentucky Society of Washington currently is accepting applications for its Henry Clay Internship for the summer of 2014.

 

“I was first introduced to Washington as an intern and feel that the Henry Clay Internship is a tremendous opportunity for any college student from across the Commonwealth who is interested in public service and working in Washington, D.C,” said internship coordinator Don R. Bramer. “I encourage anyone who wants to experience firsthand the many opportunities our nation’s capital has to offer to apply for this prestigious honor. The program’s financial support makes a summer internship possible for those selected.”

 

The Henry Clay Internship is open to UK students and to other Kentucky students who are attending colleges or universities within the Commonwealth, those who will be rising juniors or seniors at the time of the internship. They must have a serious interest in pursuing a career in public service for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

 

The internships provide an outstanding opportunity for students to be placed in an office of a member of the Kentucky congressional delegation, or an office of the executive branch. Each intern receives a $3,000 stipend for living expenses in Washington during the six-to-eight week summer internship. Applications must be submitted no later than Jan. 31, 2014 and in accordance with the application procedures described on the website. Interviews will be held in February 2014, and the internships will be awarded later that month.

 

Aleksey Graboviy, a 2012 Henry Clay Internship recipient from UK said, “By far, the internship made possible the most fun and educational summer I have ever had. I enjoyed the focus the Kentucky Society placed on experiences and opportunities both in everyday life and outside of work. The program gave us wonderful opportunities to connect with our peers and to interact face to face with national leaders."

 

Graboviy said the Henry Clay Internship was much more than just a scholarship. "It has helped with job placement, connections in Washington and the personal relationships that I have developed," he said. "Also, the stipend was vital. Without the financial support from the Kentucky Society, spending enough time here to really become immersed and develop an understanding would have been far too expensive for any college student to afford. Were it not for my internship, experience would have been impossible.”

 

The Kentucky Society selects interns who demonstrate superior academic achievements and intellectual development; effective oral and written communications skills; the ability to work well with others; outstanding trustworthiness; sound judgment; and strong initiative.

 

Anyone interested in finding out more about the program is invited to contact Don Bramer, Chairman, Henry Clay Internship for Public Policy, at henryclayinternship@kentuckysociety.org.  UK students can also apply for the internship through UK's Office of External Scholarships.
