Governor’s Intern Program Fall 2008

The Governor’s Intern Program is looking for bright, hardworking, and enthusiastic people to intern at the State Capitol during Fall 2008.  Our interns range in age from college juniors to recent college graduates to graduate or law school students.  Governor’s Interns work in a fast-paced environment and gain a wide-range of experience in politics and government.

Each intern is assigned to a supervisor in a state agency or Governor’s Office department.  Here, the interns will gain specific experience based on his/her internship assignment; in addition, many interns are given the opportunity to cross-intern in different shops to gain a wide variety of experiences.

All majors are encouraged to apply and interns will receive a stipend based upon their education level.  

  • You must be a currently enrolled junior, senior, graduate student, or law student with a 2.8 GPA or higher.
  • You must be either a Georgia resident or attending a Georgia college, university, or law school.
  • The deadline for Fall 2008 applications is June 30.  More information can be found at, and I have also attached a brochure for you to distribute at your convenience. 

    We are also currently accepting applications for fellows in the Governor’s Internship Program. Fellows are required to be recent college graduates and have the ability to work forty hours a week.  A fellowship in the Governor’s Office lasts for 6 months. The next period is December 18 – June 18, 2009.  Fellows receive a stipend of $9.50/ hour.  If anyone is interested, please have them fax their resume, a cover letter, a reference list and a writing sample to 404-656-7119.
