Kappa Alpha Order

Internship

The Kappa Alpha Order Internship Program was created to provide deserving undergraduates with the desire to become better educated and informed on both the public and private sectors of our national government. In addition, this program will give undergraduates the opportunity to gain professional work experience while living in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Georgia, and Dallas, Texas. The Kappa Alpha Order Internship Program provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to any interested Kappa Alpha Order undergraduate. The internship, living and working in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and Dallas, and interacting with other interns from across the country, provides an everlasting experience.

Internship Requirements
Applicants must be an initiated active member and 21 years old at the time the internship begins on May 26th.

How are the interns selected?
The Kappa Alpha Order Internship Committee selects a pool of applicants based on their application.  Then the committee schedules phone interviews to finalize the list to five interns per city.  Internship selections will most likely be finalized no later than January.

How are the internships selected for the Interns? 
Interns are placed into premier internships based on their future career plans and/or interests.  Several KA alumni assist with internships for U.S. Senators and Congressman, Lobbyists, Political Fundraisers, businesses, legal firms, the financial sector, health care industry, marketing firms, and other career-related fields.  Sometimes two internships are provided for an intern to give them different experiences.

What does KA provide for the interns?
Interns will receive transportation to and from the internship and lodging in their internship city.  Interns are responsible for all other costs and most internships are not paid.
