STATEHOUSE (Aug. 29, 2019) – Applications are now open for the Indiana House Republican Internship Program, which takes place during the 2020 legislative session at the Statehouse in Indianapolis, according to State Rep. Randy Frye (R-Greensburg).

Frye said the internship program is a unique opportunity for college and graduate students, and recent graduates to gain valuable hands-on experience and apply skills in a real-world setting. He said the paid internship is full-time and takes place during the spring semester.

“Internships are a great foundation to land full-time employment,” Frye said. “Many staff members at the Statehouse and some legislators got their first taste of public service through this intern program. It is a wonderful experience for young people looking to begin their career while helping Hoosiers and our state.”

Internship positions are open to college sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students and recent graduates of all majors. Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative operations, communications and media relations, policy or fiscal policy.

The positions are full-time, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through mid-March. Interns receive biweekly compensation of $750, and can earn academic credit through their college or university. Frye said interns are also eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.  

More information about the Indiana House Republican Internship Program and the application can be found at www.IndianaHouseRepublicans.com/internship. Frye said the deadline to apply is Oct. 31.
