Internships provide students with the unique opportunity of stepping out of the classroom to enhance their education and gain experience in a real-world setting. Participating in internships at the local, state and national levels allows students to gain valuable insight into the political system and public service, and get a head start on a successful career.
Internships are available through the Walker Institute on the national, state, and local level. Application intake periods are in October, February, and April. Be on the lookout for application deadlines.
The Walker Institute provides internships opportunities with the U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, the state legislative offices, non-profit groups and other organizations.
