STATEHOUSE (July 26, 2018) – Indiana House Republicans are now accepting internship applications for the 2019 legislative session, which begins in January, according to State Rep. Dale DeVon (R-Granger).
DeVon 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.
“The House internship program is for those interested in applying skills they’ve acquired in college as they work at the Statehouse,” DeVon said. “Interns work alongside legislative staff during session to help conduct research, respond to constituents and handle media inquiries, depending on their interest and their skill sets.”
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.
More information about the House internship program and the application can be found at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/internship. DeVon said the application deadline is Oct. 31.
