May 25, 2015 – Maci Lienemann, a junior majoring in animal science at the University of Nebraska, is one of four recipients of the 2015 ASAS Science Policy Summer Internship Program in Washington, D.C. Lienemann will intern with U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., during her time in Washington, D.C.
“I have a unique set of interests when it comes to livestock, science and policy, so I hope this internship will give me a glimpse of how I can combine those into a future career,” Lienemann said in a recent University of Nebraska-Lincoln press release.
During the internship, Lienemann will work with congressional staff and federal agencies on preparing research and legislative briefings. She will also interact with agricultural constituents.
Funding from the Bob Zimbelman, Harold Hafs, Barb Glenn, Jack Britt, and Louis Boyd Appreciation Clubs will support this summer’s science policy interns.
