STATEHOUSE (July 31, 2018) – Indiana House Republicans are now accepting internship applications for the 2019 legislative session, which begins in January, according to State Rep. Chris May (R-Bedford).

May 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.

“The House Republican Internship Program offers a speaker series where interns hear from officials like statewide and congressional office holders,” May said. “These activities provide interns the opportunity to interact with a range of professionals and learn about a variety of issues.”

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.

More information about the House internship program and the application can be found at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/internship. May said the application deadline is Oct. 31.
