Founded by former U.S. Representative Karen Shepherd, the Karen Shepherd Intern program funded local campaign interns in Utah for nearly two decades, making it one of the most prolific intern programs in Utah politics. Today, Shepherd’s emphasis on ethics and public service gets new life as the Karen Shepherd Internship for Ethics and Good Government, now housed in the non-partisan, Alliance for a Better UTAH. Shepherd’s name has been, and remains, a symbol of statesmanship and an important expression of the power of civic engagement to make Utah a better place for all Utahns, independent of political affiliation.

Interns are generally juniors and seniors from colleges and universities throughout the state, are paid a stipend, and work on policy issues and public messaging toward building a more balanced, transparent and accountable Utah.
