Priority: Informational

The deadlines for New York State Assembly and Senate Undergraduate Internships in Albany are approaching.

The internships are fulltime, residential experiences.  Numerous students have landed great jobs as a result of their Albany internships.  Others have enhanced their professional degree prospects or have come back to campus with new clarity about their future career paths.

The monetary award for next year’s Albany-based New York State Legislative Internship Programs—in the Assembly and Senate—has been increased significantly. The 2018 award will be $5,850, an increase of $825 over the previous amount. CUNY continues to provide a $2,000 supplemental award to its students (up to 25), bringing the 2018 total to $7,850!

And there are other rewards for these experiences, including academic credit (arranged via the Campus Coordinator) and a payment of $6,900 ($4,900 from the State Legislature and $2,000 from CUNY) to participating students.

(Please Note: Once on the Senate page, students will see two separate links at the top: one for the 2018 program description, and one for the 2018 application. Students will need to print the documents from both links. Unfortunately, the Senate does not accept online forms. The students will have to submit hard cover applications with their supporting materials.)

Should you have any questions about these two great learning programs, please do not hesitate to contact Prof. Charles Tien at
