Indiana House Republicans are now accepting internship applications for the 2019 legislative session, which begins in January.
According to State Representative Denny Zent (R-Angola), the House Republican Internship Program is an 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.
Zent says that “interns come out of this program with a real understanding of how state government operates".
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.
The application deadline is October 31st.
