New parliamentary interns start work
Thirty-four new parliamentary interns have been welcomed to Parliament House for an orientation session as they begin their research work.
The students from Melbourne, Monash and Victoria universities are participating in the first semester of this year’s parliamentary internship program.
Now in its 27th year, the program provides third year university students with the opportunity to prepare a research report on a topic chosen in consultation with a member of parliament.
More than 1,000 students have participated in the parliamentary internship program since it was established in 1990. Many have gone on to pursue prominent careers in the public and private sectors.
Students from La Trobe University and Swinburne University of Technology will participate in the second semester of the program.
More information is available from the internship program webpage.
