Internships

Washington, DC

Summer 2018 applications are now open.

In the Washington DC office, the Civic Internship Program will run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. 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, Civic Interns' responsibilities will vary. They will 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. 

To apply for the Civic Internship Program in Washington DC, email a cover letter and resume to garamendi.internships@mail.house.gov. Please include dates of availability in your submission. If you have any questions, you can e-mail garamendi.internships@mail.house.gov.
