2016 Washington State Legislative Internship Program final deadline: October 16, 2015

Undergraduate Students-

Applications for the 2016 Washington State Legislative Internship are open now on their website! The internship is open to ALL majors.

They will accept applications between now and October 16th. The 2016 internship will run from January 6, 2016, through March 10, 2016.
The Washington State Legislative Internship Program’s Priority deadline of October 6th has passed, but if you are interested, you can still apply by the final deadline of October 16th, 2015.

The Legislative Internship is an amazing opportunity for students to learn about the formation of public policy at first hand while developing the sorts of transferable professional skills that employers are looking for. On a day-to-day basis, interns are tracking legislation, attending hearings and meetings, communicating with constituents, and conducting research for state legislators.

Additional information about the internship, about the application and other frequently asked questions can be found on their website:
