(UNDATED) - Senator Dan Coats (R-Ind.) today announced that he is accepting internship applications for the spring semester.
Senator Coats offers internship opportunities for college students in both his Indianapolis and Washington, D.C. offices.
"A congressional internship provides students with an in-depth look at how the federal government operates," Coats said. "Internships are a valuable experience that can help students apply what they have learned in the classroom. I encourage all interested students to consider submitting an application."
Interns will be assigned duties ranging from constituent services and conducting tours of the U.S. Capitol to legislative research. The internships are unpaid. Most interns are college students in their junior or senior year. However, college graduates are also encouraged to apply to gain valuable experience before entering the workforce or attending graduate school.
More information and an application packet are available at http://coats.senate.gov. The application deadline for the spring semester is November 1.
