Intern Program / ASM
The Associated Students of Madison (ASM) Intern Program is one of the best ways to learn more about ASM, gain the skills to organize a grassroots campaign, meet campus leaders, and advocate for an issue with UW Administration, Madison City Council, State Legislature, or even Federal Congress.
The Intern Program lasts a semester and consists of:
- a weekend retreat & training with ASM Leaders to kick off the program
- a weekly class with other interns from 4:00-5:15pm on Thursdays in the Student Activity Center
- individual meetings with a past intern for guidance and support
- an open committee meeting that relates to your issue
- 3-6 additional hours per week of work on your campaign
Interns can also choose to apply for 3 credits of course credit in a department of a sponsoring professor, or count their work as volunteer/leadership hours for programs like the Leadership Certificate.
How to Apply
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year and decisions will be made before classes start. Approximately 8 - 10 interns are selected each semester. Additional information, along with the application, can be found here.
