SMU student, Kaitlyn Montan, receives Tower Center’s 2016 Jack C. and Annette K. Vaughn Foreign Service and International Affairs Internship.
Kaitlyn Montan is from Flower Mound, Texas, and is majoring in Political Science and International Studies with a concentration in Middle East and Africa.

Every academic year, the Tower Center offers one Foreign Service and International Affairs Internship which will allow a highly qualified SMU sophomore or junior student the opportunity to gain first hand knowledge of American foreign affairs. The selection process is based on merit and determined by an application and interview process. Additionally, students applying for the State Department Intern Program must meet the eligibility requirement of this program, which includes a background investigation necessary to obtain security clearance. Students selected by the Tower Center but not chosen by the State Department Intern Program will be placed in another international affairs center, government agency, or think tank in Washington, DC.
