STATEHOUSE (Aug. 16, 2019) – Applications are now open for the Indiana House Republican Internship Program for the 2020 legislative session, according to State Rep. Alan Morrison (R-Brazil).

Morrison 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.

“We have had many students come through our internship program who have developed important skills needed to succeed in today’s job market,” Morrison said. “It is a worthwhile opportunity for those seeking to grow their professional portfolio and gain experience in the state legislature.”  

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

More information about the Indiana House Republican Internship Program and the application can be found at www.IndianaHouseRepublicans.com/internship. Morrison said the deadline to apply is Oct. 31.
