The Legislative Internship program gives students the opportunity to earn 12 credits and a stipend, while working for a legislator’s office in the state capitol in Juneau, during the legislative session in January – May.

UAA encourages students, regardless of major, to apply.  This is an outstanding opportunity for students in pursuit of many different kinds of degrees.  To be eligible, students must have reached a junior’s standing by the time they attend the program, and must have completed at least one 3-credit political science course.

Students interested in becoming legislative interns for spring semester 2016, must apply by October 15, 2015.  Students must apply online, but also must have two letters of recommendation (at least one faculty) emailed to Dr. Forrest Nabors, Assistant Professor of Political Science UAA Campus Coordinator, by the application deadline.

Two informational meetings will be held in the Lyla Richards Conference Room, located on the lower level of the student union:

  • Friday, September 25th at 10:30AM.
  • Monday, September 28th at 10AM.

Students who are considering applying now or in future years, are encouraged to attend.
