Twenty-Two Applications Approved for
Dane G. Hansen Community Intern Program
Twenty-two NW Kansas communities, including cities, towns, school districts or other qualified organizations located in the 26 counties served by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, were approved to host one or two summer interns for 2019. The 22 host communities will provide a professional work experience for 24 summer interns.
Funding for the interns is provided by the Dane G. Hansen Foundation to Kansas State University, which administers the program. The interns will be summer employees of Kansas State University.
KSU is now in the process of creating job descriptions and will be posting the opportunities at http://www.k-state.edu/hcs/careers/ by December 1, 2018. Upper level college students from all universities across the state are eligible to apply.
The skill-set needed for each internship is determined by the project the community/qualifying organization submitted.
“A wide variety of projects were submitted by communities” stated Nadine Sigle, Community Intern Coordinator for K-State Research and Extension. “Projects include the development of marketing and branding campaigns, rendering of 2D & 3D designs for building and park improvements, as well as a housing study, youth STEM education, and a youth leadership program.”
Interns are provided with housing and a competitive wage.
Projects and their locations are as follows:
Communities/qualifying organizations are encouraged to promote the internship opportunities to local and area college students.
The goal of the program is two-fold – to provide communities with professional services they might not be able to otherwise access, and to provide upper-level college students with a professional experience in NW Kansas which could encourage young adults and families to locate in the area.
