Governor’s Office Internship Program

  • Salary: Unpaid Internship
  • About: The Governor’s Office Internship Program is designed to provide insight to college students who want to learn more about the executive branch of state government. As an advocate for education and former school teacher, Governor Ivey understands that learning should not be limited to a classroom and that hands-on experience is necessary for students to be adequately prepared for the next step in their career journey.Staff liaisons will provide assignments and special projects to interns in their respective areas of interest giving them a realistic overview of routine activity within a government office. Although interns are not directly assigned to the governor, every effort is made to give interns the opportunity to observe the governor’s public activities. This is mainly accomplished through having interns attend proclamation ceremonies and press events in which the governor is involved.

    The internships are divided into two, six-week sessions. The first session will be held from May 11, 2020-June 19, 2020 with a deadline to apply by March 15, 2020. The second session will be held from June 22, 2020-July 31, 2020 with a deadline to apply by March 15, 2020. Hours of the internship are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
