Washington, DC

In the Washington, DC office, paid internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.

In Washington, DC, interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings, and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.

The internship sessions are as follows:

Fall: Mid-August to mid-December (at least 24 hours/week commitment)

Spring: Early January to early May (at least 24 hours/week commitment)

Summer Session 1: Mid-May to early July (full-time, 40 hour/week commitment)

Summer Session 2: Early July to mid-August (full-time, 40 hours/week commitment)

The deadline for our summer 2023 internship applications is 11:59pm on Sunday, March 5. However, we are accepting summer internship applications on a rolling basis up until that time.
