Washington DC Interns
Internships are available in the Washington office during the Spring, Fall, and Summer. A possible stipend is available for fall and spring internships. The internships available in the summer are volunteer positions and no compensation is provided; however, interns acquire invaluable experience as they assist staff with research, letter writing, and office duties. Interns have the opportunity to assist the legislative staff with constituent mail and research related to their individual legislative issues. They also assist the press secretary with various aspects of media relations.
The opportunity to spend a semester or summer living in the nation's capital and working in the shadow of the national monuments is an experience unlike any other. The majority of interns work during the summer. With many other interns in the Capitol during this time, these students have a greater opportunity to participate in programs designed for interns, including listening to guest speakers and attending seminars. Interns often arrange with their colleges and universities to receive college credit for their work in a Congressional office. Interns are responsible for their own travel, housing, and living costs; however, lower cost housing designed for interns is available. The extensive transportation system in the region provides a safe and easy alternative for those in the city without a car.
