Established in 1846, the Utah Legislature meets 45 calendar days every year. The state’s Legislative Intern Program was formalized in 1971. Past participants include Rob W. Bishop, the former Speaker of the Utah House. The legislature has 29 senators and 75 representatives. It is largely Republican.
Interns are assigned to specific legislators in the Utah House and Senate. They handle a variety of duties, including constituent concerns, research and office support.
Open to all college juniors and seniors enrolled at participating Utah universities. Applicants must be able to receive college credit for their work.
