Applications for the Summer 2023 Internship are open now! Apply HERE. Applications close March 31. 

The MyARInternship will run from June 5th through July 28th.

Last summer, we welcomed over sixty-five interns into the Arkansas Public Service Internship program to learn how State Government works in various Executive Departments. The Summer 2022 interns had the opportunity to meet with the Governor at the Governor's Mansion, tour a Department of Corrections facility, visit the Arkansas State Police training track, and meet with most of the Cabinet Secretaries. In addition to these exciting experiences, the interns also had the chance to work on meaningful projects within their assigned departments.
