Internships

I want to thank you for your interest in pursuing an internship with my office.

While I am unable to offer paid internships, at the discretion of your academic advisor, you may be eligible to obtain college credit. Interning in my office can be a great learning experience and often proves to be quite helpful in future academic and career opportunities.

My internship program is flexible and, if selected, my staff and I will do our best to accomodate your schedule. Once I receive your application, detailed materials on the internship and expectations will be promptly sent to you. An interview will also be conducted.

I appreciate your interest in learning more about the political process, and I look forward to receiving your application.
