STATEHOUSE (Aug. 21, 2019) – Applications are now open for the Indiana House Republican Internship Program during the 2020 legislative session, according to State Rep. Chris Judy (R-Fort Wayne).

Judy 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.

“Internships with the House Republicans offer the ability to develop a robust professional network and valuable career skills,” Judy said. “Combined with compensation and the chance to win a scholarship, those interested in jumpstarting their career will be hard pressed to find a better program.”

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. Judy said interns are also eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.  

“I’ve developed a good professional relationship with several interns throughout my years as a legislator,” Judy said. “They have each been a joy to work with, and we have continued to stay in contact over the years.”

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