INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana House Republicans are now accepting internship applications for the 2019 legislative session, which begins in January.
State Rep. Chris Judy (R-Fort Wayne) said the House Republican Internship Program is a unique opportunity for college students and graduates to participate in state government and gain valuable hands-on experience. This paid internship at the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis takes place during the spring semester and gives students the chance to work one-on-one with state legislators.
“I cannot think of a better internship experience for college students and recent graduates who are interested in state government,” Judy said. “Working through an entire legislative session offers a wide variety of unique opportunities.”
Internship positions are open to college sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate students, and recent graduates of all majors. Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative, communications and media relations, policy or fiscal policy.
These are full-time positions, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through April. In addition to biweekly compensation of $750, interns can earn academic credit through their college or university, and are eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate or graduate expenses.
“Earning a paycheck, college credit and being eligible for a scholarship are just part of the many benefits of being a Statehouse intern, not to mention the networking possibilities,” Judy said.
