STATEHOUSE (July 26, 2018) — Indiana House Republicans are now accepting internship applications for the 2019 legislative session, which begins in January, according to State Rep. Dave Wolkins (R-Warsaw).

Wolkins 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.

“Internships are the foundational blocks with which careers are built,” Wolkins said. “Honing real-world skills will pay dividends for students seeking a full-time job.”

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. 

“Building a strong resume is key to future employment,” Wolkins said. “Internships also provide opportunities to learn how to communicate and make new connections in a work environment.”

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