The Kenneth L. Maddy Legislative Intern Scholar Program
Each year approximately 40 University students are selected as Legislative Scholar-Interns. Legislative Scholar-Interns are placed on assignment in regional government offices, as well as in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. The Legislative Internship Program provides students with opportunities to develop public leadership skills while gaining practical knowledge of the day-to-day operations of government and the political process. Legislative Scholar-Interns receive academic credit as well as a stipend. Examples of placements include: U.S. Senate and Congressional offices (Capitol and district offices), California Assembly and Senate offices (Capitol and district offices) and the Governor’s Office. Students are selected based on their academic standing to elevate citizen participation and government performance at all levels through leadership training for public service.
