Winona State University student Samuel Bach is spending his summer in the heart of the nation’s capital.

Bach is one of several participants in the White House Internship Program’s summer session, the White House announced this week. Bach will join students from all around the nation in Washington D.C. to work for one of many departments.

According to the White House website, the program’s mission is to “make the ‘People’s House’ accessible to future leaders from around the nation,” and provides participants a unique opportunity to gain valuable professional experience and build leadership skills.

The application for the spring 2014 White House Internship Program runs until Sept. 8 and is open to college students, recent college or university graduates and recent veterans of the military. The application form can be found online at
