Spring-semester internships are available to college sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate students and recent college graduates who are Indiana residents or are enrolled at an in-state university.

Legislative internships provide an opportunity for students to gain knowledge of the inner workings of state government by being a part of the process. Interns thoroughly learn the legislative process, gaining an in-depth understanding of how public policy is crafted in a hands-on environment.

The 2013 Senate Internship will begin in January and end in April. The Senate Democrats hire legislative interns who work directly with one or two lawmakers, as well as interns specializing in the fields of communications, law and public finance.

This fall, representatives of the Indiana General Assembly internship program will visit a number of Indiana’s colleges and universities to share information and answer questions about this opportunity.
