STATEHOUSE (Oct. 28, 2022) –Local lawmakers encourage college students and recent graduates to apply for a paid Statehouse internship before the Oct. 31 deadline.
State Rep. Jeff Thompson (R-Lizton) said college sophomores, juniors and seniors, as well as recent graduates and graduate students of all majors can apply for an internship with the Indiana House of Representatives. House interns will be paid $800 bi-weekly while working at the Indiana Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis during the 2023 legislative session, starting in January and concluding at the end of April.
“The application deadline for an internship with the Indiana House of Representatives is quickly approaching,” Thompson said. “Students should apply soon and not miss out on the unique opportunity to work alongside state lawmakers during the upcoming session.”
State Rep. Greg Steuerwald (R-Avon) said interested Hoosiers should visit indianahouserepublicans.com/internship and complete the application before Oct. 31. Intern interviews are currently taking place to fill positions in legislative operations, policy, and communications and media relations departments.
“Interning at the Statehouse during the legislative session is exciting and every day is different,” Steuerwald said. “As an intern, you get to work in a fast-paced, professional setting, while getting paid. Don’t miss out on the chance to make new connections and strengthen your resume.”
“This internship offers students and recent graduates an opportunity to work with leaders from across the state and cultivate skills that can help them in any future career,” said State Rep. Bob Behning (R-Indianapolis).
Internships are full time, Monday through Friday, and include free parking, career and professional development assistance, enrollment access to an Indiana government class, and opportunities to earn academic credits through the student’s college or university. Interns are also eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.
