Event date and time
The Panetta Institute hosts students for its Congressional Internship Program beginning in mid-August with an intensive two-week course at the Institute in Monterey, CA and continuing through mid-November in Washington, D.C. Each of the 23 CSU campuses nominates one student to participate in this program. Open to U.S. citizens who are California residents with a recommended minimum GPA of 3.0+. Must be 18 or older to apply.
During an intensive summer training session, these students attend lectures led by an array of experts from diverse disciplines. Interns are then assigned to work for two and one-half months in the Capitol Hill office of a member of the California congressional delegation. The Institute covers program costs including CSUMB course registration fees, campus services during orientation, air travel and housing in Washington, D.C. Interns also receive up to 20 semester credits.
Cal State LA sophomores and juniors of all majors are encouraged to attend. Register by January 30.
