Did you complete an Internship at the Victorian Parliament during your undergraduate degree?
The Parliament of Victoria is proud to mark the 25th Anniversary of the Victorian Parliamentary Internship program next year. Since the inaugural intake in 1990, over 1000 interns have been hosted from Monash University, the University of Melbourne and Victoria University. In order to celebrate this landmark achievement, the Parliament plans to host a special Anniversary Event in October 2015.
In preparation for the Anniversary Event, the Parliament is keen to involve all former interns in a new Alumni association. The Parliament is seeking to gather information about former Interns to highlight their achievements.
Monash University alumna Jedda Bamford was awarded the 2014 Presiding Officer’s Prize for most outstanding Parliamentary Internship Report. Hosted by Andrew Elsbury, MLC, Jedda’s report was titled ‘The Safety to Surrender.’ Her report was an examination of infant safe surrender laws designed to prevent infanticide and unlawful infant abandonment considered for the state of Victoria.
If you are interested in submitting your name to the Parliamentary Interns Alumni and participating in the alumni interviews being conducted by the Parliament please complete this online form.
Your participation will be greatly appreciated by the Parliament and Monash University!
