For the past 15 years, APAPA has awarded over 500 scholarships to well-deserving college students nationwide through our internship and scholarship program.

The APAPA Internship Program is designed to prepare students to become future leaders in our greater community. This program provides an opportunity for students to develop their leadership and networking skills, gain public policy experience and become more civically engaged.

Students get the opportunity to work with elected officials at the local, state or federal level, while getting hands-on experience with legislative staff and constituents. Throughout the program, they will work a minimum of 100 hours, attend leadership, professional development, voter registration and outreach workshops.

In celebration to kick-off our 2019 California State Capitol Interns, we want you to help us recognize our next generation of young leaders and the community and corporate partners that help make this program a huge success!

Join us at the 2019 Shining Star Gala and be part of our biggest celebration and fundraiser of the year that supports our rising stars!
