WASHINGTON – The New Hampshire State Society (NHSS) announced today that the deadline for students to submit applications for its stipend program is fast approaching.

The NHSS offers stipends to New Hampshire college students interning in Washington, D.C. to assist with living expenses associated with their time in Washington.

Eligible students must currently be enrolled in a New Hampshire college or university or must be graduates of a New Hampshire high school attending college in another state; have completed their sophomore year of college (graduating seniors are eligible); have already secured an internship in the Washington area of their own accord; have maintained at least a 2.5 grade point average without any incompletes; and have a clear commitment to, and an affinity for, the Granite State (which may be demonstrated through community service or other activity/involvement in a state organization or program).

Students must submit a completed application, resume, one letter of recommendation, a copy of their college transcript, a cover letter stating interest, and an essay. Students must have proof of a secured internship in the Washington, D.C. area.
