College Internships

The New York State Assembly is accepting applications from college students for the Albany internship program in its next session, which will run from Jan. 27 through May 15. The program provides a stipend of $6,200.

The internship “offers college students a chance to participate in state government and the legislative process through a well-structured academic and practical learning experience,” according to a release from Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. Many colleges and universities also offer a full semester of credit for the program. Students apply through their schools. 

Applications must be postmarked by Nov. 1, although extensions may be granted if requested by a campus representative. Details can be found online at, by calling 518-455-4704, or emailing
