ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Bob Graham Center for Public Service at the University of Florida offers the Tallahassee Internship program each spring term to coincide with Florida's legislative session. Since its beginning in 2009, 151 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.

All academic majors are encouraged to apply.

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.

The application process is presently closed. The information on these pages is posted to provide readers with background information.
