Interns spend a minimum of 33 hours, or 66 hours per biweekly pay period, exclusive of academic course requirements, at the Capitol each week completing their Assembly assignments. The stipend is paid in biweekly installments following a two-week lag. The Assembly Intern Committee awards a $7,500 stipend ($852.28 biweekly before taxes) to each Session Intern in the January 9, 2023 to May 10, 2023 Internship.

The stipend is meant to assist Interns in offsetting the costs in relocating to Albany, New York. The stipend is not financial aid for academic work, on-campus or classroom study.
