Legislative Internship Program

The Legislative Internship Program offers the opportunity for distinguished undergraduate and graduate students to represent Georgia Southern University in Atlanta or on Capitol Hill. Students will showcase their excellent leadership and academic prowess to make a difference by working with public servants.

The Georgia Legislative Internship Program places students in the Georgia State House, Senate, or one of the legislative offices in Atlanta. These internships are only offered during the spring semester. Interns are selected based on their academic standing and the potential they have to be a leader in politics based on their work experience, extracurricular activities, and interests. The internships are open to students of all majors, provided they are a Georgia resident during their junior or senior year.

The Governor’s Internship Program offers students the opportunity to gain experience in numerous state agencies throughout Georgia. Emphasis is placed on merging classroom learning with practical application and junior and senior standing students from all majors are encouraged to apply. Interns will be placed in one of many offices including Communications, Policy, Children and Families, and more.

The Eagles in D.C. Internship Program is an exciting and intensive opportunity that provides outstanding students with the ability to work for congressional representatives, senators, governmental agencies, or lobbyist groups in Washington, D.C. Students are selected based on a number of criteria including previous leadership and civic experiences. To be considered, students must fill out the Georgia Southern application, write an essay, and provide references.

Please note: The internship process is competitive. There are two possible interview rounds for each applicant; the first is on campus with the Georgia Southern committee and the second is with the potential internship office staff. Printed deadlines must be adhered to in order to complete the internship cycle.
