The Kenneth L. Maddy Legislative Intern Program Scholarship
Each year approximately 40 University students from regional universities (Cal State, Fresno, Cal State, Stanislaus, Cal State Bakersfield, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and UC Merced) are selected as Legislative Scholar-Interns. Legislative Scholar-Interns are placed on assignment in government offices throughout the Valley, as well as in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. The Legislative Internship Program provides students with opportunities to develop public leadership skills while gaining practical knowledge of the day-to-day operations of government and the political process. Legislative Scholar-Interns receive academic credit as well as a stipend.
