In the Washington, DC office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. Interns gain invaluable work experience, and House funding is available for paid internships as of Fiscal Year 2019. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 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 may be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
Applications for DC internships for Fall 2019 will be accepted on a rolling basis, but priority will be given to those who apply by August 2.
