About Georgia Governor's Intern Program

Jimmy Carter started the Georgia Governor's Internship Program in 1971. The program is intended to provide practical experience to promising young students with an interest in government or public policy.

The Governor's Internship Program attempts to place applicants in a state agency corresponding to their interests. Participants gain hands- on experience working alongside full-time staff. Interns are encouraged to seek academic credit for the program.


Open to college juniors and seniors, grad students and law students. Students must be a Georgia resident or attending a Georgia college, university or law school. Law students are eligible for legal internships, and grad students are considered for fellowships. Students must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher.
