Our internship program is a rewarding experience for young adults who wish to become involved in today's legislative process. An internship in Washington, D.C., offers students the opportunity to observe, and participate in, the day-to-day business of the U.S. Senate.
This is a very competitive process. There are usually more qualified applicants than positions available. Interns are responsible for their own housing, food, and transportation. We offer academic credit to students who are eligible for it at their institution. Interns who do not receive academic credit may be eligible for a stipend.
We typically host one fall, one spring, and two summer intern classes. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. The following schedule is a rough guide.
- Fall internships run from late August or early September to early December. Hiring will usually be completed by July 1.
- Spring internships run from mid-January to late April or early May. Hiring will usually be completed by November 1.
- First-session summer internships run from late May to early July. Hiring will usually be completed by March 1.
- Second-session summer internships run from early July to mid-August. Hiring will usually be completed by March 1.
