New York State Assembly Intern Committee sponsors the Graduate Internship at the State Capital starting every January.

The GRADUATE INTERNSHIP provides full-time research or policy analysis positions with Assembly leaders, committees and research staffs. A $15,000 stipend is awarded for the January 11, 2021 to June 18, 2021 Internship.

The Assembly Graduate Internship provides research and policy development experiences for up to ten qualified graduate students. Approximately one third of the participants in the Internship have moved into other positions in state government. The Assembly Intern Committee affords graduate students a unique professional learning experience. Graduate Scholars are required to attend Issue Policy Forums and the course provided by the Professor-in-Residence. Graduate Scholars have the opportunity to develop their understanding of the legislative process and New York State government and to apply their ideas and research skills in the legislative process.
