HAYS, Kan. – Applications are now open for employers in northwest Kansas to apply for summer 2019 interns from Fort Hays State University through the FHSU/Dane G. Hansen Student Internship program.

FHSU students may apply for the internships beginning Jan. 28.

A grant from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation made 30 paid internships possible for the 2018-19 academic year, including the summer 2019 term. Ten internships will be available for summer and will be awarded through a competitive application process.

Jan. 18 is the deadline for businesses and organizations to apply for a summer intern.

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. Students do not have to be from the northwest Kansas area.

A participating employer invests $500 toward the student intern’s wages, and the remaining funding is through the Hansen Foundation grant. The intern will work 240 total hours.

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.

Beginning Jan. 28, students may apply for a summer internship through their Handshake account at fhsu.joinhandshake.com. The internships will be posted under the Jobs tab and can be found by selecting Employers and then searching the keywords “Hansen Internships.” The application deadline for students is Feb. 22.
