Internship Opportunities

The Kent GOP seeks skilled college students to intern in its downtown Grand Rapids office.

Selected students will benefit from a broad experience in a fast-paced office environment, interaction with community leaders, and upfront exposure to the political process. The Kent GOP may also offer for-credit experience to interns.

The Kent GOP seeks students with experience in these areas:

  • political science
  • video production & editing
  • marketing
  • web development
  • nonprofit management

While students need not be political science majors, some interest in the political process is important. Eligible students are those in their sophomore, junior or senior years of college. The Kent GOP enlists interns for summer, fall and spring academic terms.

Application process:

  • Student: submit cover letter and resume
  • Student: submit reference list - two personal and two professional
  • Optional but recommended: Faculty letter of recommendation or written recommendation from an elected, political or professional official, either addressing applied skills and/or character and work ethic
