Reminder: 2016 Washington State Legislative Internship Program applications due in about a month

    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. Starting this year, the Washington State Legislative Internship Program will have a Priority deadline of October 6th, and a final deadline of October 16th.

    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:

    If you have questions about the internship, applications, or how the credits will count at the University of Washington, feel free to contact me or set up an appointment through the Political Science Advising Appointment Calendar (  I would be glad to talk through the application process with any interested student from any department.  Don't let this amazing opportunity slip by before you graduate.
