Selected interns will be in a unique position to observe, first-hand, the operation of the legislature. Participants in the program will be assigned to members of the New Mexico State Legislature for one week during the 2017 legislative session. The intern reports at 9:00 a.m. on Monday morning of their assigned week, works full-time, and resides in Santa Fe until released at the close of the week's legislative session. Interns receive a stipend of $500 to help cover their expenses. Preparation for the internship includes a full-day of orientation in Santa Fe. Interns must register for one hour of academic credit. They are required to submit daily journals and a short summary paper to the internship coordinator. Upon the completion of the internship and the fulfillment of these requirements, interns will be assigned a grade of credit (CR) or no credit (NC).
