Tomes: Indiana Senate Republicans Offering Paid Internships

STATEHOUSE (Sept. 6, 2016) — The Indiana Senate Republican Caucus is offering paid, spring-semester internships in its legislative, legal, policy, communications and information technology offices during the 2017 session of the General Assembly, said State Sen. Jim Tomes (R-Wadesville).

Qualified candidates must be at least a college sophomore. Recent college graduates as well as graduate school and law school students are also encouraged to apply. Positions are open to Indiana residents and non-residents who attend a college or university located within the state. 

Benefits include a $700 bi-weekly stipend, scholarship and academic credit opportunities, professional development, community involvement and networking.

Senate internships are full-time positions at the Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis that begin with a mandatory orientation in late December and conclude at the end of the legislative session in April 2017.

“The internship provides a hands-on opportunity for students and recent graduates to learn about state government and policy,” Tomes said. “Our interns gain knowledge of the legislative process, and the work they do is incredibly valuable to lawmakers and staff.”

Tomes added that more information and applications for these full-time, spring semester internships with the Indiana Senate Republican Caucus can be found online at

The deadline to apply is Oct. 31.
