Each fall semester, the Panetta Institute for Public Policy, located in Monterey, provides select CSU students with an intensive two-week training course on the workings of the U.S. Congress, then sends them to Washington, DC, all expenses paid, for 11 weeks to serve for a California member in the House of Representatives. In Washington, interns will attend special seminars with government leaders, journalists, and policy experts. Students majoring in any subject are eligible to apply. The internship covers all expenses, including air travel, and food and lodging while in Monterey and Washington, DC. Each intern also will receive a stipend to help cover other expenses. Interns may earn up to 20-semester credits through CSU Monterey for a semester.
