Employer application deadline approaching for Hansen interns from Fort Hays State

HAYS, Kan. – Employers in northwest Kansas and Fort Hays State University students can apply for a spring 2019 internship through the FHSU/Dane G. Hansen Foundation Student Internship program.

A participating employer invests $500 toward the student intern’s wages, and the remaining funding is through the Hansen Foundation grant. Each internship is for one semester. The intern will work 15-20 hours per week, up to 240 total hours.

The priority deadline for applications is Nov. 2.

Eligible employers must be located in the Hansen Foundation’s 26-county service area: the block of counties stretching from the Cheyenne-Wallace County area east to include the Republic-Saline County area, including Ellsworth County.

The internship program is open to FHSU students in any major or academic area of study.

A grant from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation made possible 30 paid internships for the 2018-19 academic year (including the summer term). Ten internships were created this fall. The remaining internships will be awarded to employers and students through a competitive application process.

Interested employers should go the Career Services page on the FHSU website (fhsu.edu/career/employers/hansen-internship-program) to learn more about the program and complete the application. The employer must also provide a detailed job description for the internship.

Students may apply for an internship through their Handshake account at fhsu.joinhandshake.com. The internship is posted under the Jobs tab and can be found by searching the keywords “Hansen Internships.” Students also should apply by Nov. 2 to receive priority consideration for a spring internship.
