Senator Thune's Internship Program

On behalf of Senator John Thune, thank you for your interest in an internship with one of his offices. The internship program allows students to work in the office they are interested in and allows them to learn how a Senate office operates. Interns in the state offices participate in various outreach activities, as well as assist the state staff. In contrast, students in the Washington, D.C., office, have the opportunity to witness the legislative process, give Capitol tours, and attend Senate votes and hearings. In-state and Washington, D.C., internships allow students to work closely with constituents, hone their research skills, and learn many office skills. 


To apply for an internship, you must create an account through this website. Here you will complete the application, which consists of two parts – a questionnaire section and a checklist section.
