The Capital Fellows Programs offer a unique opportunity to participate in policymaking and development. Fellows work for 10-11 months as full-time, paid staff members in the California State Assembly, California State Senate, California Executive Branch or the California Judiciary. Fellows actively engage in public service and prepare for future careers, while gaining firsthand experience in the governance and leadership of the most diverse, complex state in the nation.
Voted four years (2010, 2011, 2012 & 2014) as one of the Top 10 internships nationwide by Vault.com, the Capital Fellows Programs are ranked highly for their combination of meaningful work experience and career opportunities. Each year, Vault’s editors evaluate the internship programs profiled in their annual guide and select from those the top internship programs they feel represent the best all-around opportunities.
