NYPIRG ALBANY PUBLIC POLICY
INTERNSHIP PROGRAM APPLICATION

New York Public Interest Research Group, Inc.

For nearly forty years, the New York Public Interest Research Group, Inc. (NYPIRG) has offered a unique Public Policy Internship Program for students from across the state. This demanding internship provides highly motivated students of all majors the opportunity to thoroughly study a particular public policy issue and to participate in the legislative process. Our interns also gain practical experience in such areas as public speaking, writing, research and dealing with the media—excellent additional preparation for graduate studies and the job market.

NYPIRG public policy interns research, track and promote legislation in such diverse areas of public policy as consumer protection, public campaign finance, higher education, health care, political reform and environmental preservation. Interns are supervised by NYPIRG's program director.

This year, the program hopes to attract another qualified group of students who wish to combine their academic training with work experience. Your help in promoting the program can be significant. We would greatly appreciate it if you would post the enclosed materials and mention the internship to your classes. The internship program is based in Albany, New York. The program begins in early January of 2018 and continues until the end of the academic semester.
