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 who are 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 will include, but are not limited to, answering constituent correspondence, summarizing hearings, gathering news clippings, and compiling legislative research. 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 Summer 2021 internship application will be posted in early 2021.
