“I believe the internship program offered by the House Republicans is one of the best learning experiences available for a college student,” said Rep. Morris. “The opportunities this internship presents are endless, and the skills they build upon will help them immensely when they look for employment after college.”
Applicants from all academic majors are accepted. Interns will be compensated with a $700 bi-weekly stipend and are eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 Verizon scholarship. The scholarship can be applied toward educational expenses for the student’s current or future undergraduate or graduate studies.
The internship will be for the entire 2013 legislative session, which begins in January and ends in April. It is a full-time internship, Monday through Friday at the Statehouse, located in Indianapolis.
Individuals interested in the internship program may consider four different concentrations when applying: member services, media, computer/technology and policy/fiscal. For a detailed description of each concentration and additional information concerning the internship program, please visit www.in.gov/legislative/house_republicans, select the ‘Student Opportunities’ tab at the top of the page, then select ‘Internships’.
The Indiana House Republicans will accept applications for the internship program until October 31. Applications are currently being accepted at the website listed above.
Interviews will be conducted as applications are received. Applicants are encouraged to work with their school in order to obtain academic credit for the internship – most colleges and universities in Indiana offer class credit.
“I strongly encourage all eligible students and graduates to apply,” said Rep. Morris. “We strive to give our interns real-life work experience working side by side with legislators and expand their professional network.”
