Applications for Legislative Internship due Oct. 13

Looking for a spring internship? Something that's open to all majors, fun and exciting? An internship where you retain full-time student status and receive a $3,000 stipend? Consider the Legislative Internship at the Missouri State Capitol.

The internship program, which begins in early January and ends in mid-May, annually sends students to Jefferson City to gain valuable experience in the legislative process and an understanding of how Missouri is governed.

Each student is placed in the office of a state senator or state representative. Students track and craft legislation, conduct research, attend committee hearings and work sessions, assist with constituent issues and lead tours of the capitol.

Past interns have remained active in the halls of the capitol or gone on to successful careers in politics at all levels of government including public relations and law.

Four interns are selected based on grade-point average, interests and political views. Candidates must write an essay addressing why they should be placed in the program.

The application deadline for the Missouri Legislative Internship is Wednesday, Oct. 13. More information and an online application is available by clicking here.
