Through internships for students at the University at Albany, Empire State College, and Hudson Valley Community College, the Center for Law & Policy Solutions introduces students to the politics of law and policymaking and, more broadly, helps them understand the effect government can have on people’s lives.
NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR SPRING 2021
We are now accepting applications from undergraduate students enrolled for the spring semester at participating schools—University at Albany, Empire State College, and Hudson Valley Community College—that are interested in pursuing work in public policy research and practice. Click here for more information on the internship.
Students will need to register for the corresponding course at their school once they are accepted. Participating schools may have internal deadlines for enrolling in the corresponding courses to receive credit, but students are encouraged to apply early. We will accept applications on a rolling basis for the time being. Students must be enrolled full time to be eligible for the internship.
Students receive both credit and are paid for the internship ($12/hour for 10 hours a week, over the course of 15 weeks).
