Guided Study at the Homeplace

Lindsey Wilson has a collaborative relationship with the Homeplace on Green River, a local nature conservancy project that emphasizes "hands-on" learning of history, as well as experiencing Kentucky farm life of the, past, present and future. Through guided study, History students can explore all areas of our rich local history at the Homeplace while connecting the past with the present issues facing Kentucky agribusiness.  Because the Homeplace is one of the oldest farms in Central Kentucky, the possibilities for historical exploration are endless. 


 Kentucky Legislative Internship Program 

The Legislative Research Commission Internship Program provides an opportunity for self-motivated, outgoing, and qualified college students who are majoring in History to gain an understanding of the legislative process by actively participating in it.  History students will spend four months working with Legislative Research Commission staff and members of the General Assembly.  They will be trained and treated like actual employees of the LRC.  Students are placed in areas that best utilize their personal interests and/or qualifications.  These areas include the legislative committee staff, the director's office, constituent services, and the public information office. The interns will receive a $1,000 monthly allowance (subject to all applicable taxes) and be responsible for their own housing, meals, and other expenses while in Frankfort.  In the past, the legislative intern program has not only aided in developing the talents of the interns, but has also helped give direction to their career goals.  The interns make new friends and often develop professional contacts during the four-month program.
