The Indiana Senate Republican Caucus is offering paid spring-semester internships in its communications, information technology, legal, legislative and policy offices during the 2021 session of the Indiana General Assembly, said State Sen. Erin Houchin (R-Salem).
Qualified candidates may be of any major and must be at least a college sophomore. Recent college graduates as well as graduate and law school students are also encouraged to apply. Positions are open to Indiana residents as well as nonresidents who attend a college or university in Indiana.
Interns earn a $750 biweekly stipend and benefit from the scholarship and academic credit opportunities, professional development, community involvement, and networking.
Senate internships are full-time positions at the Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis that typically begin with a mandatory orientation in late December and conclude at the end of the legislative session in April 2021. The Indiana Senate is currently developing plans to conduct legislative work amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and, as always, strives to provide a safe working environment for all interns, staff, and senators.
“I know firsthand how beneficial this internship can be for young professionals,” Houchin said. “My experience as a Senate intern helped me realize my passion for public service, which led me to run for office and being elected as a state senator. This year, Senate interns will be more essential than ever as we work to complete this legislative session safely and responsibly. I encourage all eligible residents of Senate District 47 who wish to serve their communities and gain professional experience to apply for this internship.”
