The Indiana Senate Republican Caucus offers paid, spring-semester internships to recent and current college undergraduates as well as graduate students. Interns work directly with Indiana legislators at the Statehouse, located in downtown Indianapolis. This internship is a unique opportunity to gain practical knowledge of state government through active participation in the legislative process.
The health and safety of our interns, staff, and the public is of paramount importance. Although on-site work is considered the default manner of work, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there may be a combination of both on-site and remote work, depending on health metrics and trends, and after reviewing information from health authorities. Details will be established closer to the start of the internship and shared with all interns.
The Indiana Senate was named the 2014 Employer of the Year by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce’s Indiana INTERNnet program.
The Senate Republicans offer multiple internship opportunities for the spring semester. The duties for each internship are outlined below:
