Indiana House Democrats to offer paid internships to students and recent graduates during 2021 session
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana House Democratic Caucus will offer college students and recent graduates several internships in the upcoming 2021 session of the Indiana General Assembly. Different learning opportunities will be available to interested applicants, including policy, media relations, video production, graphic and print design, fiscal analysis, member services and a spot working with the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus.
This is a full-time, paid position with a bi-weekly stipend of $750. Academic credit is available but determined by the intern’s school.
“I'm very proud to serve in a legislature that offers such a robust internship for young professionals in Indiana,” said Tonya Pfaff (D-Terre Haute). “Not only do interns get a front row seat as new state laws are being written, but they also get to walk away with a much stronger résumé and a network of new connections from inside and outside the Statehouse. Every intern I've worked with has gone on to do great things and I have no doubt that this experience has helped open some of those doors for them.”
To qualify for this internship, applicants must be at least a Sophomore in college, but no specific major is required. A desire to learn about government is strongly encouraged. An online application, cover letter, résumé, academic transcript and three letters of recommendation must be completed by Friday, October 30, 2020 to be considered.
