Gain firsthand experience. Build professional relationships. Develop skills for your future.
Undergraduate and graduate students of all majors from Arizona universities are invited to apply for competitive internships positions during each Legislative Session as part of the Arizona Legislative Internship Program. Previous knowledge of the legislative process is not required to apply.
Interns gain invaluable experience while earning 12 hours of undergraduate upper-division credit or 9 hours of graduate credit in their field of study, a stipend (paid bi-weekly over the course of the internship totaling $5,000), and a tuition waiver for the semester. Those selected for the internship positions will work full-time down in Phoenix at the state capitol during the Legislative Session from January through May (Spring semester). Students from outside of Maricopa County are eligible to receive a moving allowance of up to $1,000.
