The Georgia Legislative Internship Program full-time internship offered each spring for pay and up to 12 hours of academic credit. Interns work directly alongside legislators and career legislative staffers in the State Capitol in downtown Atlanta during the fast-paced legislative session as valuable team members in one of the nation’s leanest state legislatures. With interns from Georgia Tech recently serving the Lieutenant Governor, Speaker of the House, and Higher Education Committee chairmen, experiences have ranged from conducting research used by legislators in formal policy discussions to supporting committee meetings to staffing legislators at events off of the Hill. The Legislative Internship is your chance to offer much-needed services to the General Assembly while furthering your education and building contacts for future opportunities.
Participation in the Legislative Internship is open to ALL majors, and you can maintain your full-time student status while serving. Recent interns have majored in a varieties of subjects, from Public Policy to Aerospace Engineering to International Affairs and Economics, and insurance coverage, financial aid eligibility, and on-campus housing will not be disrupted while working as an intern.
Applications must be submitted for consideration by October 30, 2009.
