ABOUT THE PROGRAM:
The Bob Graham Center for Public Service at the University of Florida offers the Tallahassee Semester Internship program each spring term to coincide with Florida's legislative session. Since its beginning in 2009, 132 students have served as interns in Tallahassee.
During the spring semester, the Center offers up to 15 internships throughout Florida government, including positions with the legislature, governor's office and executive branch agencies, the news media and various associations and lobbying organizations.
In addition to their intern duties, students take a course on Florida politics and attend a number of seminars featuring major political and policy actors in the state. Students can earn additional academic credit through web courses or an independent study with UF faculty. Interns are required to live and work in Tallahassee during the full duration of the legislative session.
Students interested in learning more about the Tallahassee Semester or who are interested in serving as an intern in Tallahassee during the spring semester, should contact Dr. Sheila Dickison at firstname.lastname@example.org or (352) 846-1575 for additional program information.
