ECU students selected as State of N.C. interns
Two East Carolina University students have been chosen to serve as State of North Carolina interns this summer.
Kathryn Stanley, a political science major, is working in the General Assembly’s House of Representatives, and Ann Marie Ballance, a history major, is working with Natural and Cultural Resources at a historic site. More than 475 students applied for 103 internships this year.
The 2016 intern applicants represented 77 counties, 74 public and private colleges and universities, law schools and community colleges, and more than 110 different majors. The N.C. Internship Council selected 95 students to work on projects in 20 state departments.
Established in 1969 as the first such program in the nation, the State of North Carolina Internship Program offers paid internships to N.C. residents attending a two- or four-year college or university, community college, graduate school or law school in N.C. or an equivalent institution in another state. The internships provide a professional work experience that integrates education, career development and public service. Opportunities exist in numerous recognized fields of study, from accounting to zoology.
