Please note that applications are no longer being accepted for 2013 session internships with the Indiana State Legislature. The application deadline was Oct. 31.
The application process for the 2014 Indiana House internship programs will begin in late summer of 2013.
Paid internships are available at the Indiana House of Representatives, offering excellent opportunities to learn firsthand about the legislative process and gain valuable experience in a high–profile, professional work environment.

The Indiana House Democratic Internship Program provides great opportunities for college students and recent college graduates who want to gain valuable professional experience in a high–profile position as a valued member of the Indiana General Assembly's legislative session staff.
From early January through March of 2014, our interns will work closely with legislators, state officials and others directly responsible for developing state governmental policies through the legislative process.
The Indiana House Democratic Internship Program emphasizes the value of firsthand experience by giving interns significant responsibilities for a wide range of duties within the realm of legislative session activity.
Successful internship applicants will exhibit strong writing, research and communication skills. Although a strong interest in the legislative process is presumed, past interns have come from a exhaustive variety of academic backgrounds, including journalism, history, pre–law, journalism, English, political science and many others.
Applicants must be students or recent graduates who are either Indiana residents or attending school in Indiana. Academic credit is typically earned by interns who make the appropriate arrangements with their schools.
Legislative interns in all four caucuses of both the Senate and the House of Representatives will earn at least $350 per week.

Both the Republican and Democratic caucuses of the Indiana House of Representatives host their own separate but similar internship programs. If you are interested in an internship with the Republican Caucus, please visit that program's website. This is a partisan position: candidates who apply to both Republican and Democratic caucuses will find their applications voided by both.
