Internships

Washington, DC

In the Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring, or summer semesters for college students — to help students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students’ hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session. The office utilizes the annual House Paid Internship Program to help pay interns.

In Washington, DC, interns’ responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings, and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.

All internship applications for the Summer 2024 term are due no later than 5:00 pm on Sunday, March 3, 2024. Please fill out the contact form below to apply.

How can we best contact you?

This will help us reach out with a reply.

Constituents who are hard of hearing or use a video phone have the option to choose TDD or VP based on the type of device they are using. This allows our office to respond to them accordingly. The default option 'Voice' is a standard audible telephone.
