“We aim to help Michigan’s students start their careers in Michigan government and politics on the right foot. We look forward to seeing today’s interns become tomorrow’s Michigan leaders,” IPPSR Director Matt Grossmann said.

Participants will earn a certificate for completing the semester series.

“Our goal is to offer students every opportunity to invest their classroom learning directly into career-building opportunities,”  Sherman Garnett, James Madison College Dean. “This expansion of an already valuable program does exactly that.”

The workshops are offered under the auspices of the Rosenthal Legislative Internship Program. The program includes the Daniel Rosenthal Legislative Internship Award, named for the late Daniel Rosenthal, of Ann Arbor. He was one of MSU’s first Legislative Student Intern Program participants.

Rosenthal’s family began the award following the MSU student's untimely death. Michigan legislators nominate interns for the honor, and a committee composed of representatives from IPPSR, James Madison and the Legislature select winners.
