Please fill out the virtual event registration form and we will send you the Zoom link prior to the event. Each January the Washington State Legislature welcomes around 70 passionate, inquisitive, and hardworking students to serve as non-partisan, full time legislative staff. In addition to earning academic credit, interns engage as part of a team, helping solve real world problems for the citizens of Washington. These interactions provide one of a kind insights into the events and legislation that impact our state every day.

The Legislative Internship Program offers unparalleled access to Washington’s most influential leaders and policy makers, professional development to build transferrable skills, and hands-on simulations to learn all aspects of the legislative process. This experience will encourage you to learn quickly, think critically, and develop professionally as you forge lifelong connections in public policy. Political experience is not necessary, and students of all majors are encouraged to apply.

The Legislative Internship Program welcomes applicants from diverse backgrounds and political ideologies who are active leaders, engaged in campus communities, and excited to learn about government while gaining practical job skills. Whether your interest is in law, business, communications, environmental policy, public health, or elsewhere, there is a place for you in Olympia. Interns are matched with legislators in the House of Representatives or the Senate based on interest areas and political ideology. The program also has opportunities for interns to serve as caucus staff, focusing on policy or communications. The 2022 internship begins January 10, 2022 and ends March 10, 2022. Students must be enrolled juniors or seniors, in good academic standing, and receiving academic credit for the internship.
