Each year we select approximately 40 university students from regional universities as Legislative Scholar Interns. Interns are placed on assignment in government offices throughout the Valley, as well as in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. The Legislative Internship Program provides students with opportunities to develop public leadership skills while gaining practical knowledge of the day-to-day operations of government and the political process. Interns receive academic credit as well as a stipend. Examples of placements include: U.S. Senate and Congressional offices (Capital and district offices), California Assembly and Senate offices (Capitol and district offices), the Governor’s Office, and various city offices. Students are selected based on their academic standing to elevate citizen participation and government performance at all levels through leadership training for public service.
