This Memorial Internship Program is named after former National Federation of Republican Women President Dorothy Andrews Kabis, who served from 1963-1967 and was later appointed Treasurer of the United States by President Richard Nixon. Each year, the program offers three young women the opportunity to spend six weeks in our nation’s capitol working in the headquarters of the country’s foremost women’s partisan political organization.
Applicants must be U.S. Citizens, undergraduate college students age 21 and over, having completed high school but not yet graduated from college.

The internship provides housing in the D.C. metropolitan area, round trip airfare, and a Metro card for daily travel to and from the office. A small monetary allowance is also given. Interns must pay for meals, tourism, and all other expenses.
