Loop Legislative Internship Program
The Loop Legislative Internship Program provides financial assistance for select CALS undergraduate and graduate students completing state or federal legislative internships. Applications and program details are available at http://www.cals.ufl.edu/current_students/legislative_internships.shtml#LoopLegislativeInternshipProgram.
Information on previous recipients and their internships is available at http://www.cals.ufl.edu/current_students/loop_legislative_program.shtml.
· Undergraduate Students: Have completed at least 45 credit hours with the most recent 12 at UF
Graduate Students: Have completed at least 9 graduate credit hours at UF
· Must be enrolled as a full-time CALS student at the time of application
· Must be actively seeking or have accepted a legislative internship
· Minimum 3.00 GPA
· Good interpersonal and public relations skills
· Record of campus involvement
The amount of the award is to be determined by the CALS Dean's Office and may vary by the student's internship and location. Awards may be used for housing, travel and living expenses. Funds are intended to help defray the costs associated with completing an internship rather than funding an internship in its entirety.
Deadlines are as follows:
March 30, 2012
July 13, 2012
Oct. 31, 2012
