Cal-in-Sacramento Fellowship

Each year the Cal-in-Sacramento program, a core component of the Matsui Center, sends approximately 30 Cal students to intern in public service in California’s capital. Cal-in-Sacramento is the University of California’s largest -- and one of the nation's most prestigious -- campus-based public service internship programs. Over three decades, more than 500 Cal students have gone to Sacramento under our auspices to garner first-hand experience in the most dynamic state capital in the country. Many of these students have gone on to careers in politics, government, and public service.

Cal-in-Sacramento Fellows work for eight weeks in Sacramento internships in the offices of Senate and Assembly members, the governor's office, state agencies, or nonprofit groups. The program provides free housing for students, and stipends to help defray living expenses are available on a need basis.
