STATEHOUSE (Oct. 18, 2017) – Applications to intern with the Indiana House Republicans during the 2018 legislative session are due Oct. 31, according to State Rep. Kevin Mahan (R-Hartford City). 

The House Republican Internship Program offers paid, spring-semester internships at the Indiana Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis. These are full-time positions, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through mid-March. According to Mahan, college-level students participating in the internship program work one-on-one with state legislators while developing valuable skills and connections for a professional career. 

“This internship is a truly hands-on experience,” Mahan said. “It’s amazing the amount of talent that comes through our internship program. My interns play an integral role in communicating with constituents and moving bills through the legislative process. Students who are looking for a way to launch their career should apply for this unique opportunity.” 

College sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate or law students, and recent graduates of all majors are eligible. Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative, communications, video production, policy, fiscal policy and technology. Along with getting paid $750 every two weeks, students can earn academic credit through their college or university.

When submitting an application, students must also include an official transcript, resume and two letters of recommendation. Mahan said top applicants will demonstrate strong writing skills, have a positive attitude and be willing to work in a fast-paced environment.
