Gain Valuable Experience in the State Legislative Process


The UCF Legislative Scholars Program, established in 2004, offers students a premier legislative internship opportunity in Spring 2025. Each selected intern will be assigned to a member of the Legislative Delegation or a lobbying group and will be expected to spend at least three months in Tallahassee (shared apartment provided and rent paid for February – May), supporting the legislative office, or lobby office with research, constituent relations, bill tracking, and other duties required in the daily operations of a legislative office during the Session.

Applications are now open and can be found on handshake under “2025 Legislative Scholars Internship.” (Job #8669151)

Applications close on September 22nd, 11:59PM. Visit the Application and Tips section to learn more about info sessions and workshops the Office of Government & Community Relations will be providing for interested students.

“This was an incredible opportunity! I only have positive things to say about this experience, it truly set me up for success and greatly altered the remainder of my time at UCF by allowing me to achieve things I didn’t think possible. I highly recommend participating in this program, it will greatly improve your understanding of the legislative process at the state level and help you find job opportunities post-graduation.”
