The TNDP Internship Program provides recent graduates and students in high school, college or graduate school with an opportunity to play a hands-on role in Tennessee politics. Students from across the state can participate to develop leadership responsibilities, while working alongside of TNDP staff, legislators and candidates.

Academic Expectations
Students with a desire to work in a political campaign environment are welcome, and political science and history backgrounds are not required. Positions are available for students with experience in government, political science, administration, communications, public relations, journalism, photography, graphic design and video production. Selection is based on academic qualifications, including a minimum 2.5 GPA, as well as each applicant’s passion and expected aptitude for the variety of job assignments within the TNDP.

Time Frame
Two internship tracks are available this summer for students interested in working 20+ or 40+ hours. Interns are required to begin working in time to take part in an intensive training beginning June 6th in Nashville.

Academic Credit
The number of academic credits granted depends on your college or university. Please contact your faculty representative to obtain this information and collect any necessary forms from your university internship advisor. We are happy to work with any institution to meet the guidelines for credit.

Please note: obtaining academic credit is by no means a requirement.
