POLITICAL SCIENCE INTERNSHIP
The majority of Congressional internships are unpaid, forcing students to front the bill for a $10,000 opportunity. This creates a barrier of entry for students with limited financial means. We have one such student currently facing this obstacle. The student was recently accepted for an internship this summer through the College to Congress program in Washington D.C.
Alumnus Amos Snead ’02, partner with S3 Public Affairs and co-founder of FamousDC.com in Washington D.C., understands the transformative effects an internship like this can have. “I spent a summer in Washington, D.C. during my undergraduate career at the University of Montevallo.

This is an opportunity to expand your horizons and gain valuable internship experience,” said Snead.
