Sen. Argall encourages undergraduates to apply for prestigious internship, scholarship opportunity

HARRISBURG – Senator David G. Argall (R-29) is encouraging students currently working towards their bachelor’s degree to apply for the James A. Finnegan Fellowship Foundation summer internship program today.

Argall, a 1978 Finnegan intern and current volunteer on the board of directors, said the internship provides a unique opportunity to experience the inner workings of state government.

“The students who graduate from the [James A.] Finnegan internship program gain invaluable experience working directly with key staff and elected officials in state government,” Argall said.

Internships will begin late May 2015, and range from 8 to 10 weeks. Interns are compensated with a weekly salary by state agencies during their employment.

In addition to the paid internship, students are awarded a $1,000 to $1,500 scholarship courtesy of the James A. Finnegan Foundation.

Students interested in applying must submit an application along with an essay by February 7, 2015.

The Foundation was established to honor the legacy of James A. Finnegan, who served as the Secretary of Pennsylvania from 1955-1958.
