Governor’s Internship Program

Thank you for your interest in an internship with Governor Gina M. Raimondo's office. We are always looking for the innovative and bright interns who want to complement their academic experience with public service. Our internship program is designed to give insight into the various paths of public service and provide the opportunity to be a part of the daily operations of state government.

Internship opportunities are available within the Governor’s Constituent Services, Policy, Communications, Legal, and Operations’ offices. Staff members will arrange various tasks and projects which will give you a realistic overview of routine activity within a government office. In all cases, every effort will be made to match the intern to their demonstrated area of interest.

We highly encourage all interns to seek academic credit for their internships as our Fall, Winter and Spring sessions are not compensated. Our office will be happy to work to meet any respective guidelines and provide proper documentation or other information, which may be needed to meet college or university requirements. Typical hours of the internship are from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, but may vary.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Must be 18 years or older
  • Currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program or recent college graduates
  • Ability to work a minimum of 15 hours a week; hours are available outside of 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday- Friday
