“The Arizona Capitol TV internship taught me so much about what life after college will be like. It’s a full-time job that takes field experience to the next level. My managers were amazing, and my fellow interns became some of my greatest friends. The only thing I can say to people that are thinking about applying is that they’d be crazy not to take advantage of such a unique opportunity.”

— Spring 2017 Intern Julia Garringer, Arizona Capitol Television

Don’t have prior experience or knowledge of the legislative process? It’s ok. This internship is open to all backgrounds and majors. You do NOT need previous knowledge of the legislative process in order to apply.

“Don’t let inexperience or lack of political knowledge intimidate you. A sincere interest and willingness to learn will be enough for you to succeed in the internship. If you’re thinking about it, just go for it! It’s an amazing opportunity.” — Former NAU intern Shirley Springer

In addition, to the experience, legislative interns will receive a stipend of $4,700, a tuition/fee waiver, and earn 12 hours of undergraduate upper division credit or 9 hours of graduate credit upon successful completion of the internship.


Intern placements include the Arizona State Senate, the Arizona State House of Representatives, the Arizona State Governor’s Office, the Arizona State Supreme Court, or Arizona Capitol Television.
