Pheffer Announces 2010 Internships
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer is pleased to report that the New York State Assembly is offering two internship programs to eligible college and graduate students for the upcoming 2010 Legislative Session.
The Assembly Session Internship offers up to 150 college students a chance to participate in state government and legislative process through a well-structured practical learning experience. Most colleges grant Session Interns a full semester of credit, as recommended by the Regents National Program on Noncollegiate Sponsored Instruction. The Assembly Intern Committee awards a $4,140 stipend to each Session Intern to help defray the cost of relocating to Albany from January 4 through May 12, 2010.
Applicants for this program must be matriculated in a college degree program as juniors or seniors. They must be NYS residents or attend a college in NYS. Applicants may be from any major and should have a strong interest in state government and the legislative process. The position offers an $11,500 stipend for working in Albany from January 4 through June 23, 2009. Applicants for the Internship must be matriculated in or have recently completed a graduate degree program. They must be NYS residents or attend a university in New York. Applicants should have excellent research skills and a strong interest in state government and the legislative process. Students of all majors may apply.
Persons interested in applying for either of these 2010 Internships should meet with their on-campus liaison, who should have application forms and necessary instructions. If you do not know who your on-campus liaison is, or in the event he or she does not have the appropriate application material, you may call the Assembly Intern Committee at 518-455-4704 for further assistance.
