STATEHOUSE – Whether studying economics, telecommunications, or history, State Rep. Chris May (R-Bedford) said local college students and recent graduates can gain valuable hands-on work experience by interning with Indiana House Republicans at the Statehouse in Indianapolis.
“Many of our interns move on to full-time jobs with the House of Representatives, state government, or in meaningful roles in the private sector,” May said. “This program offers the chance to work with professionals from across Indiana and develop the skills needed for a successful career after college.”
According to May, internship positions are open to college sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students, and recent graduates of all majors. Students can apply for internships in a variety of departments related to their field of study, including legislative operations, communications and media relations, policy and fiscal policy.
Interns will work at the Statehouse in Indianapolis for the duration of the 2022 legislative session, which kicks off in January and concludes mid-March. The paid, spring-semester positions are full-time, Monday through Friday. Interns receive biweekly compensation of $750, free parking, career, and professional development assistance, enrollment access to an Indiana government class, and can earn academic credit through their college or university. Interns are also eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.
May said to visit indianahouserepublicans.com/internship for more information and to apply before the Oct. 31 deadline.
