WilDCats at the Capitol

WilDCats at the Capitol is the University of Kentucky’s federal government internship program that offers any UK student the opportunity to intern, earn course credit, and gain experience at the highest levels of government while living in the nation’s capital. Internships provide a dynamic opportunity to gain real- world work experience and apply classroom learning in a fast-paced, professional environment. Students spend 40 hours per week interning in the public agencies and private of ces on and off Capitol Hill.

Earn Credit as a Full-time Student- WilDCats at the Capitol is open to all majors. As a participant in this program, you will remain a full-time student earning 12 academic credit hours through your internship and classes taught by UK faculty in Washington, DC. By remaining a full-time student, you can use the scholarships and nancial aid you have earned and continue on a timely path to a degree.

Convenient Housing with UK Students- Participants in the program live together in a renovated historic town home in a safe district only steps from the US Capitol Building, the US Supreme Court, and the Library of Congress. Each town home is fully furnished; includes cable, utilities, laundry facilities, and internet; and is easily accessible to the DC Metro system.

Competitive Program Costs- Interns pay the same UK tuition and fee rates while living in the nation’s capital, but because WilDCats at the Capitol interns remain full-time students they can utilize their nancial aid and scholarships. Program housing costs include a $200 refundable security deposit and rental fees ranging from $3,900 in the summer to $4,300 in the fall and spring semesters for double occupancy rooms, shared living space, and a full kitchen to share with your fellow UK students interning in Washington, DC.

Financial Aid- In addition to scholarships and nancial aid that you have already earned, applicants are encouraged to apply for additional support offered by the Office of the President, Department of Political Science, and the UK Student Government Association. Last year, the WilDCats at the Capitol program awarded more than $15,000 in scholarships to participants.

The Hopes of Socialism: Liberty, Equality, Solidarity

Dr. Murray Bessette is the director of academic programs at the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation. Prior to joining VOC, he was an associate professor of government at Morehead State University, specializing in political philosophy, national security, counter terrorism and intelligence studies. Dr. Bessette holds a BA and MA in political science from University of Alberta and an MA and PhD in political science from Claremont Graduate University.

Socialist revolutionaries have claimed that overcoming the bourgeois system would usher in a new way of life where the free development of each person is a condition for the free development of all. Life in this classless society would be marked by liberty, equality and solidarity. The appeal of these universally recognized ends both captured the imagination of those who believe there must be final political solution to all human ills and justified whatever actions were deemed necessary for bringing this situation into existence. And yet, in each and every instance, politically empowered socialism has produced a system of servitude, inequality and suspicion, where the life of a dissenter is solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short. Socialism’s inevitable failure makes a critical re-examination of the means appropriate to the pursuit of these ends all the more important today.

Co-sponsored with the Departments of History, Philosophy, and Political Science.
