Assemblyman Matthew Mirones (R,C – Staten Island, Bay Ridge) announced that applications are being accepted for the New York State Assembly session and graduate internship programs for 2004.
“The session internship program offers college students a chance to participate in
state government and gain firsthand knowledge of the legislative process through a well-structured practical learning experience,” said Mirones. “Most colleges grant session interns a full semester of 15 credits so I encourage all interested students here in Staten Island to take advantage and apply.”
According to Mirones, the Assembly Intern Committee awards a $3,500 stipend to each session intern during Jan. 5 – May 12, 2004. Applicants generally have a mid-October deadline set by their college liaison officer, but should check before submitting their application.
Mirones also noted that applicants:
Be matriculated in a college degree program;
Can be from any major;
Must demonstrate academic ability; and,
Receive a positive recommendation from their campus liaison.
The Graduate Internship provides full-time research or policy analysis positions with Assembly leaders, committee and research staffs. An $11,500 stipend is awarded during the January 5 to June 23, 2004 internship. Completed applications must be mailed to the Assembly Intern office by November 1, 2003.
Graduate applicants must be in or have recently completed a graduate degree program. Applicants should have excellent research skills and a strong interest in state government and the legislative process.
