Phi Beta Kappa Writing Internships

Posted in Announcements

The national office of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest honor society, is looking for participants for its writing internship program for students at colleges and universities with Phi Beta Kappa chapters. The internships are open to juniors and seniors, and they involve a commitment to participate over spring and summer 2013. The intern positions will be unpaid, but students will gain valuable experience working as writers for a nationally recognized institution located in Washington, D.C., and publication of their work by Phi Beta Kappa.

For this program, Phi Beta Kappa seeks students with the following characteristics/abilities:

• Major in the liberal arts or sciences
• Possess strong writing and editing skills, ability to meet deadlines
• Cover diverse topics and report on events of interest to Phi Beta Kappa and its members
• Conduct independent research, including interviews
• Make a two-semester commitment to the program and produce six stories (500-700 words each)

Interested students should complete the form at http://tinyurl.com/lsupbkintern and submit it and two letters of recommendation to Tara Laver, Secretary of LSU Phi Beta Kappa, by October 19. The chapter officers will review the applications and submit recommendations to Phi Beta Kappa. The national office will then contact those who are recommended to discuss the program and to request writing samples, if they are candidates for an internship. Recommendation by the LSU chapter does not imply students will be invited to join Phi Beta Kappa.

Please contact Laver with any questions, tzachar@lsu.edu or 225-578-6546.

Sigrid Kelsey is the Director of Library Communications and Publications at the LSU Libraries.
