STATEHOUSE (Oct. 19, 2017) – Applications to intern with the Indiana House Republicans during the 2018 legislative session are due Oct. 31, according to State Rep. Sean Eberhart (R-Shelbyville).

The House Republican Internship Program offers paid, spring-semester internships at the Indiana Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis. These are full-time positions, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through mid-March. According to Eberhart, college-level students participating in the internship program work one-on-one with state legislators while developing valuable skills and connections for a professional career. 

“This internship is a valuable experience for individuals to not only learn about the legislative process and network, but to also build their resumes and strengthen their skills for the workforce,” Eberhart said. “With the application deadline approaching, I encourage students in our community to apply for this one-of-a-kind opportunity.”

College sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate or law students, and recent graduates of all majors are eligible. Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative, communications, video production, policy, fiscal policy and technology. Along with getting paid $750 every two weeks, students can earn academic credit through their college or university.

When submitting an application, students must also include an official transcript, resume and two letters of recommendation. Eberhart said top applicants will demonstrate strong writing skills, have a positive attitude and be willing to work in a fast-paced environment.

Applications can be submitted online at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/internship.
