Indiana House Reps. To Offer Paid Internships To Students & Recent Graduates

The Indiana House Democratic Caucus will offer college students and recent graduates several internships in the upcoming 2021 session of the Indiana General Assembly. Different learning opportunities will be available to interested applicants, including policy, media relations, video production, graphic and print design, fiscal analysis, member services and a spot working with the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus.

This is a full-time, paid position with a bi-weekly stipend of $750. Academic credit is available but determined by the intern’s school.

“This internship is a unique and rewarding experience,” said Indiana House Democratic Leader Phil GiaQuinta (D-Fort Wayne). “Interns are given the opportunity to interact with lawmakers as they create new state laws and gain rare insight into the legislative process. Having this experience on your resume can open the door to a career in politics and many of our interns continue on to become valued staff members.”

To qualify for this internship, applicants must be at least a Sophomore in college, but no specific major is required. A desire to learn about government is strongly encouraged. An online application, cover letter, résumé, academic transcript and three letters of recommendation must be completed by Friday, October 30, 2020 to be considered.
