Frankfort Legislative Internship Program

This program was established to provide University of Louisville students with an opportunity to work and learn in a hands-on legislative environment. The interns work in individual legislator’s offices and assist with their activities and work functions. The internship counts for 3 academic credit hours and all interns will receive a $250 stipend.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE? All students enrolled at the University of Louisville. In addition, selection is based upon academic qualifications, each applicant's expected potential for professional research and a variety of other job assignments in connection with the work of the state legislature, and potential for successful personal interrelationships in the environment of a legislative session.

WHEN: Interns serve from the beginning of the session in January until one week after the adjournment of the legislative session (March). Interns will need to be available to go to Frankfort 8:00 - 5:00 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Any student applying for the program must be willing to commit for the entire time of the internship.
