Each year, the Panetta Institute invites CSU presidents to nominate an outstanding undergraduate (junior or senior) student leader from each campus to participate in the fall semester Congressional Internship in Washington D.C.

The fall semester internship program runs from August 2017 through November 2017.  The internship is fully funded to allow participation by any qualified student.  Student benefits for the semester include a two-week orientation at the Panetta Institute in Monterey Bay; an 11- week congressional internship in Washington D.C.;  academic program and unit accrual; the cost of academic fees and tuition;  food and housing; a living stipend; academic materials; and air and ground transportation.

This internship is an incredible opportunity for the student selected to represent Sacramento State.  Adali Hernandez (2015) and Wendy Ly (2016) are two of Sacramento State’s most recent Panetta Interns.  View the slideshow below for a peek inside their internship experience.

Application deadline for Fall 2017: FEBRUARY 13, 2017
