This internship takes place during the 2020 legislative session (January to mid-March) at the Indiana Statehouse and is full-time Monday-Friday. Interns receive biweekly compensation of $750. College sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduate students can earn course credit during the internship depending on their school and are eligible to apply for a $3,000 scholarship.

The Indiana House Republican Caucus internship is unlike many others. Aside from being a paid position, it offers the opportunity to gain meaningful and real-world work experience. Interns help state representatives in a variety of ways, including in the legislative department and in media relations and policy research. There’s also a need for a law student to work with our chief counsel and staff attorneys who oversee all House proceedings as lawmakers draft and file legislation.

Participants hone valuable job skills and build a strong network of professional contacts. With so many topics debated and industries affected by the legislative process, students from any major can benefit from this experience.

In fact, many former interns have used this opportunity to find jobs with the Indiana House Republicans, as well as with other state government agencies and in the private sector. This internship looks great on a resume and typically serves as a launching pad into other successful careers. Watch a video about a day in the life of an intern.
