The Arizona State Legislature convenes into session on the second Monday of January every year at the State Capitol. During this time, they address the state’s most pressing public policy issues and pass a state budget. Students from every degree area at each of the three universities across Arizona are invited to apply for 50 paid positions each session under the Arizona Legislative Internship Program. Interns can apply to work in the State Senate, State House of Representatives, the Governor’s Office and the State Supreme Court.
As an intern you will work alongside legislative and executive staff while getting a unique perspective on Arizona’s legislative process. You’ll work on special projects, present before legislative committees, and expand your professional network all while earning a paycheck and academic credit. Prior experience or knowledge of the legislative process is not required.
