Internships

Working in a U.S. Senate office can be an incredibly rewarding and exciting experience. An internship provides an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience and observe first-hand how our government operates. Interns gain practical work experience by undertaking a variety of administrative and legislative responsibilities in the office. Internships are available expressly for the purpose of furthering educational opportunities; therefore they are unpaid and awarded to college-level students.
