If interested in applying, you should do the following:
- Contact the designated Legislative Internship Program Advisor on your campus. Each school has different registration requirements in relation to eligibility criteria and credit. You must work with this advisor through the application process. (Click here to see the list of Advisors)
- Complete and submit the online application. The application for the coming program year is posted in the preceding September.
- a cover letter expressing your interest in applying for the internship;
- a one page resume that outlines your educational background, honors or recognition, work experience, activities, special skills, etc.;
- a transcript from the college that you currently attend. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable. Applicants must complete at least 20 college credits by January 2016. The Internship Committee may require an updated transcript at the beginning of the internship if Fall 2015 classes are needed to meet this requirement.
You will need to upload the following three components as part of your application:
Applications submitted without all three of the components above will be considered incomplete and will not be accepted.
- two letters of recommendation from people who know you well and can provide an accurate view of your strengths and weaknesses;
- A copy of the transcript you provided with your program application.
Campus Advisors will then complete and submit a Campus Advisor Recommendation Form for each student applicant. This form will become part of your application. Without this form, your application will be considered incomplete and will not be accepted by the program.
Unless stated otherwise, all materials are due to your designated On-Campus Advisor in advance of the November 1st application deadline to allow for appropriate follow-up on their part.
DEADLINE FOR CAMPUS SUBMISSION OF APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2016 SESSION IS NOVEMBER 1, 2015
