The Minnesota Senate provides an education program designed to provide opportunities for students to learn the legislative process. The 2021 legislative session will begin January 5 and is expected to conclude no later than May 17. Senate internships expose students to the legislative process and to the internal workings of a specific Senator’s office. The internships are flexible and are arranged between the individual Senator and the intern.
The due date for applications is Thursday, November 5, 2020. They will conduct screening interviews on Zoom followed by formal interviews with prospective offices shortly after that date. They hope to notify students of their status by mid to late December. The 2021 Senate internship program will be conducted remotely.
