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. Matt Lehman (R-Berne).
Lehman 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.
“It’s always exciting to see young professionals from our community gaining valuable experience at the Statehouse,” Lehman said. “In addition to getting paid, networking and earning college credit, interns with the House of Representatives further master skills that set them apart from others in this competitive job market. Team work, communication and time management are all very important, and interns with the House can apply these skills in a real-world setting.”
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.

Rep. Matt Lehman (R-Berne) represents House District 79, which includes all of Adams County and portions of Allen and Wells counties.
