Thank you for your interest in serving as an intern in my Washington, D.C. office. This program offers a unique experience in which interns are able to observe the first-hand operations of the United States government. It is encouraging to know that there are young people looking to be involved in our nation’s legislative process.
Our internship program is designed to give college students an opportunity to observe and participate in the operations of a United States Senate office. Intern responsibilities include answering constituent correspondence, summarizing hearings, utilizing computer skills, typing, filing, and miscellaneous errands. In addition, my staff arranges tours and lectures for interns while they are visiting the Washington, D.C. area. Although I am unable to pay interns due to Senate budget restrictions, I believe that serving as a Congressional intern can prove to be a valuable experience.
The selection of interns is made on the basis of several criteria including, but not limited to: academic achievement, extracurricular activities, residence of the applicant, and the time the application is submitted.
The application window for Summer 2019 is now closed. If you have any questions, please call 202.224.5744.
