Internship Opportunities


Internships provide students with the unique opportunity of stepping out of the classroom to enhance their education and gain experience in a real-world setting. Participating in internships at the local, state and national levels allows students to gain valuable insight into the political system and public service, and get a head start on a successful career.

Three Walker Institute interns spoke about the value of internships during Weber State University's TEDx. Watch them here:




Internships are available through the Walker Institute on the national, state, and local level. Application intake periods are in October, February, and April.  Be on the lookout for application deadlines.
