The Washington State Legislative Intern Program is accepting applications now from juniors and seniors to take part in a paid ($1300/month), for-credit internship at the State Capitol. We hire around 70 students each year from colleges around the state each year.
Applications are open now and are due on October 10, 2016 (priority deadline) or October 18, 2016 (final deadline). Students must be enrolled juniors or seniors, in good academic standing, and receiving academic credit for the internship. The 2017 internship will run from January 4, 2017, through the end of winter quarter. Students may have the option to stay through the end of session on April 24.
Political experience is not necessary. We welcome students of all majors and provide amazing opportunities for networking, shadowing, and real-world experience in a wide variety of fields, from state government and politics to business, law, criminal justice, communications, social work, environmental policy, education, and public health.
