Students interested in state and local government can gain valuable experience and prepare for careers in public service through a variety of undergraduate and graduate experiential learning opportunities that we offer each semester.

Vinson Fellows Program

The Vinson Institute Fellows Program is an educational opportunity for UGA's undergraduate students interested in state and local government. Through the program, students will have an opportunity to become involved in our training, applied research, and technical assistance programs and other projects for state and local governments in Georgia and internationally.

Georgia Legislative Intern Program

Each spring, approximately 35 students from Georgia's public and private universities and colleges gain firsthand experience in the lawmaking process through the Georgia Legislative Internship Program coordinated by the Georgia General Assembly.

Student Employment

Beyond just getting a paycheck to help contribute to living expenses or tuition, students can gain valuable experience through a part-time job. We regularly offer part-time paid employment opportunities for UGA students.
