Governmental Internship Programs
North Georgia College & State University cooperates with the Governor's Intern Program in creating opportunities for students to be actively involved in specific projects in public agencies. Interns work within state and local agencies for a full semester and may receive up to 12 hours of academic credit for the intern experience. Credit may be given by any department in the university with the permission of the department head and the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Information is available in the Department of Political Science/Criminal Justice.
Each year a student is awarded a Legislative Internship with the Georgia Assembly. The award includes a stipend. In addition, each congressional office is allocated funds for internships. Students compete for internships in the district in which they reside.
The university also participates in the Senate Intern Program. Juniors, seniors, and graduate students who are U.S. citizens and residents of Georgia may participate in the program for academic credit. Interns selected by competitive application will work in the Georgia or Washington, D.C. offices of a U.S. Senator for one academic semester and will receive a small stipend to offset additional living expenses. Application materials are available in the Department of Political Science and Criminal Justice.
