Alumni formed to celebrate 25 years of internships


More than 1000 students have participated in the Victorian Parliamentary Internship Program since it commenced in 1990. To celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2015, an Alumni Association is being formed to reunite people who have participated in the program and to recognise their achievements.

The Victorian Parliament is calling on previous parliamentary interns to join the alumni and to send in photos of their time at parliament to help create a special pictorial history of the program.

The internship program is a joint initiative between the Victorian Parliament, the University of Melbourne, Monash University and Victoria University.

Students who are selected for the program compile a research report on a topic that is selected in consultation with a Member of Parliament.

Graduates from the program have gone on to become MPs, Clerks of Parliament, newspaper editors, journalists and parliamentary officers.

A special reunion event will be held in October 2015.

Past interns can register for the alumni and submit photos online at the internship program 25th anniversary webpage.
