Find 2019 Congressional Internships

A congressional internship is a mix of hard work, political experience and educational rigor. Congress depends on interns for a number of tasks, from administrative responsibilities like answering phones, letter writing, filing, and running errands to research and constituent assistance. Internships of this kind are primarily available in the summer, though there are several that take on students all year round. These internships are extremely competitive, as Congressional staffers look for individuals with a strong academic record, leadership skills, and a background in community service and student government. While these internships are primarily unpaid, they provide a student with unmatched hands-on experience.
