Arizona Legislative Internships

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 internship positions during each Legislative Session as part of the Arizona Legislative Internship Program. Interns have the opportunity to work with the Arizona State Senate, Arizona State House of Representatives, Arizona State Governor's Office or Arizona State Supreme Court. Broadcast interns work with Arizona Capitol Television and complete a separate application. 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 $5,000 stipend, 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. 

The deadline for the Spring 2018 Legislative Internship has passed. Applications for Spring 2019 will be posted in July 2018.
