STATEHOUSE (Oct. 20, 2017) – Applications to intern with the Indiana House Republicans during the 2018 legislative session are due Oct. 31, according to State Rep. Curt Nisly (R-Goshen).

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 Nisly, 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. 

“Our internship program offers students the chance to gain hands-on experience while learning more about state government,” Nisly said. “Interns get paid, earn academic credit, build their resumes, and network with business leaders throughout Indiana. With the application deadline quickly approaching, I strongly encourage students in our community to apply for this one-of-a-kind 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. Nisly said top applicants will demonstrate strong writing skills, have a positive attitude and be willing to work in a fast-paced environment.
