Opening Doors Internship:

Far too often, qualified students cannot afford to come intern in our office because of the costs of housing, transportation, and food. Senator Menendez is committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to learn more about government and the legislative process. Democracy is most effective when everyone has a seat at the table. Senator Menendez is asking for students, who would not otherwise be able to afford interning in Washington, of all diverse backgrounds, to apply for a fall session internship. If accepted, each intern would receive a stipend of $5,000 to help pay for the costs of living in Washington, D.C. Prospective interns should be mature, self-motivated, and enthusiastic. Candidates should also have strong research and writing skills.  All candidates for this stipend must be students currently enrolled in an undergraduate program, and all candidates must have a 3.0 GPA or higher to be considered for the Opening Doors Internship. Applications from individuals with New Jersey ties are preferred.
