2019 APIs Mobilize College Internship Application
Are you interested in impacting change but not quite sure which direction to take? The legislative internship is intended to offer Asian American Studies and Ethnic Studies students an opportunity to work as part of a legislative team on issues affecting the community. The internship will provide you with insights and hands on experience on how changes are made legislatively, how policies are made, and how constituents' concerns are handled.

Work may include researching policy issues; writing speeches; organizing town halls and other interactions between legislators and their constituents; and responding to constituent inquiries.

Seven students will be selected to participate in an internship program with placement in a congressional or state legislative office. Some of our partners include Congresswoman Judy Chu, Congressman Ted Lieu, Assemblymembers: Ed Chau, Anthony Rendon, Sharon Quirk-Silva, and Patrick O' Donnell and Senator Ben Allen.

*** DEADLINE: JUNE 3, 2019 ***
