Washington, DC Office
In the Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are very 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 on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office. Preference will be given to those applicants who reside in the 10th District.
