The Legislative Research Commission Internship
Program provides an opportunity for self-motivated, outgoing,
and qualified college students to gain an understanding of the
legislative process by actively participating in it.
Students will spend four months working with Legislative
Research Commission staff and members of the General Assembly. They
will be trained and treated like actual employees of the LRC.
Students are placed in areas that best utilize their personal
interests and/or qualifications. These areas include the
legislative committee staff, the director's office, constituent
services, and the public information office. The interns will
receive a $1,000 monthly allowance (subject to all applicable
taxes) and be responsible for their own housing, meals, and other
expenses while in Frankfort. In the past, the legislative intern
program has not only aided in developing the talents of the
interns, but has also helped give direction to their career goals.
The interns make new friends and often develop professional
contacts during the four-month program.
