The Matsui Local Government Fellowship offers students the opportunity to get firsthand municipal experience in California's political and policy making communities. Each year, students selected for this program intern in a branch of local government of the student's preference.
We will help place you in the internship that you find most interesting, whether it is working in a mayor's office or interning for a local school board. The internship will involve full time work during the summer. To help with living costs and transportation we will award up to a $2,000 stipend.
