STATEHOUSE (Aug. 30, 2019) – Applications are now open for the Indiana House Republican Internship Program, according to State Rep. Wendy McNamara (R-Evansville).

McNamara 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. She said the paid internship is full-time and takes place during the spring semester at the Indiana Statehouse in Indianapolis.

“Students and recent graduates from our community are encouraged to apply for an internship this legislative session at the Statehouse in Indianapolis,” McNamara said. “I see firsthand how this program prepares students for career success, whether in government or the private sector. If you or someone you know is interested in public service, public relations or policy, please apply as soon as possible.”

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.
