STATEHOUSE (Aug. 16, 2019) – Applications are now open for the Indiana House Republican Internship Program during the 2020 legislative session, according to State Rep. Bob Heaton (R-Terre Haute).
Heaton 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 at the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis.
“Our internship program is a great opportunity to learn the legislative process while gaining valuable job skills and professional contacts,” Heaton said. “I encourage anyone interested in state government and public service to apply.”
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.
