STATEHOUSE (Aug. 27, 2019) – Applications are now open for the Indiana House Republican Internship Program, according to State Rep. Shane Lindauer (R-Jasper).

Lindauer 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.

“An internship at the Statehouse is a great experience that will give students and recent graduates the skills and experience they need to jumpstart their careers,” Lindauer said. “You don’t want to miss an opportunity to work at the Statehouse and learn how state government operates.”

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