The Governor's Leadership Academy is a unique internship program for currently enrolled college and graduate students to gain a hands-on learning experience in the Governor's Office. The Inslee Administration is looking for innovative, forward-thinking individuals who are committed to public service, and want to develop their leadership and public policy skills in a dynamic environment.

The Governor’s Leadership Academy is a paid, 10 week summer internship, with start dates either June 3 or June 17.  Interns will work 28 hours a week (4 days, 7 hours) at $15/hour.  Internships are based in Olympia (except Washington DC Office).  The program is designed for current undergraduate students (except the Office of General Counsel position, in which case a law student is preferred); students graduating in Spring 2019 are not eligible.  This recruitment also details the Ruth Woo Fellowship, a mentorship program operated in partnership with the Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs, that will be available to one of this summer’s Leadership Academy selections.

To apply, students should submit a letter of interest, resume, and short writing sample describing how they will bring a unique, diverse voice to the program and what they hope to gain from the experience.  Students should submit applications electronically ( or by mail.
