The Minnesota Senate provides an education program designed to provide the opportunity for secondary education students to learn the legislative process. Participating Minnesota colleges and universities grant college credit to a student working for a Senator. The internships vary in length because of differing college requirement and the differing needs of individual Senators.

The deadline for the 2020 internship application was October 31, 2019. We will keep your application on file and will contact you if we experience more demand.
