The Kappa Alpha Order Internship Program was created to provide deserving undergraduates with the desire to become better educated and informed on both the public and private sectors of our national government. In addition, this program will give undergraduates the opportunity to gain professional work experience while living in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Georgia, and Dallas, Texas. The Kappa Alpha Order Internship Program provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to any interested Kappa Alpha Order undergraduate. The internship, living and working in Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and Dallas, and interacting with other interns from across the country, provides an everlasting experience.
The internship program honors E. Fleming Mason, an initiate of Beta Pi Chapter at Presbyterian College in 1929, Commander for John Temple Graves Province (South Carolina) from 1962 to 1975, and Preceptor of the Graves Court of Honor. E. Fleming Mason was the first director of the South Carolina highway patrol in the late 1930′s and then made his career with the FBI until he retired in 1968. After his retirement, he served the province as the Preceptor of the Graves Court of Honor. Until his death in 1987, Brother Mason was extremely active in the affairs of the Order. He was a fixture at many Graves Province chapter functions. He worked tirelessly to promote the Order’s ideals and was instrumental in helping numerous KAs find summer employment and potential careers after graduation.
