Applications for the 2022 Summer internship are now open!

The MyARInternship will run from June 6th through July 29th.

Last summer, we welcomed over thirty interns into the Arkansas Public Service Internship program to learn how State Government works in various Executive Departments. The Summer 2021 interns met with the Governor at the Governor’s Mansion, toured a Department of Corrections facility, went to the Arkansas State Police training track, and met most of the Cabinet Secretaries in addition to participating in projects in their assigned department.
