In recent years, three of our students (two from SOLA and one from Business) have successfully participated in the NY State Assembly Internship program, for which students earn 12-15 credits, and a stipend of $6,600. (There is a similar State Senate program).
Participants are assigned to work in the office of a member of the State Legislature. They also take one course, taught by two experienced professors, develop a policy proposal, and participate in a mock legislative session. This program is an excellent learning and career development experience, and we encourage students of any major to apply.
