Governor Seeking Interns For The Summer


PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Dennis Daugaard is currently seeking applications for a summer 2017 Governor’s Office Internship in Pierre. The position will be paid and run from early May through August 2017.


Governor’s Office interns have the opportunity to work at the highest level of state government, learning about and preparing legislation to be introduced in the next legislative session.


Interns’ duties depend on interests and strengths. Typical duties will include aiding the Governor’s communications director, conducting policy research, preparing policy briefings, and staffing the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and First Lady.


The internships are open to all undergraduate or graduate-level students. Preference will be given to South Dakota residents attending South Dakota colleges or universities.


Students who are interested in receiving credit should also apply. The Governor’s staff is open to working with individual universities and professors to secure credit for the internship program.
