STATEHOUSE (July 27, 2018) – Indiana House Republicans are now accepting internship applications for the 2019 legislative session, which begins in January, according to State Rep. Cindy Ziemke (R-Batesville).
Ziemke 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.
“Interning with the House of Representatives is a wonderful opportunity to see how our government works and build a resume by gaining valuable experience,” Ziemke said. “College students and recent graduates not only work closely with representatives and Statehouse staff, but also attend a weekly speaker series and other networking events to help them grow as young professionals.”
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.
More information about the House internship program and the application can be found at www.indianahouserepublicans.com/internship. Ziemke said the application deadline is Oct. 31.
State Rep. Cindy Ziemke (R-Batesville) represents House District 55, which includes
all of Fayette County and portions of Decatur, Franklin, Ripley and Rush counties.
