Applications for Spring 2014 will be due October 1, 2013!!
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. 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. Interns will earn 9 to 12 hours of academic credit.
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, an independent study with UF faculty or as a transient student at FSU. Interns are required to live and work in Tallahassee during the full duration of the spring semester (January through April). A mandatory orientation session is held in Gainesville in late November or early December where the previous year's interns will discuss the internship with accepted applicants.
Former Florida Senate President and UF lecturer, Mike Haridopolos, serves as the resident faculty member in Tallahassee. Students with sophomore or greater standing from all academic majors and fields are eligible to apply for this competitive program.
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. Shelia Dickison at firstname.lastname@example.org or (352) 846-1575 for additional program information.
