Senate Majority Internships - Information Technology

Senate Majority Internships - Information Technology

Thursday, September 29, 2022

Applications are open for the Indiana Senate Republican internship program for the 2023 legislative session. One of these opportunities includes serving as an information technology intern.

IT interns work alongside the IT director, legislators, staff and fellow interns to assess and respond to the technological needs of the Senate.

Some of the responsibilities of an IT intern include:

  • Responding to IT needs of senators and staff;
  • Troubleshooting hardware and software issues;
  • Assisting in the implementation of new technologies; and
  • Reformatting and reimaging computers, set up, operating and troubleshooting audiovisual equipment, video switchers, audio/video teleconference equipment, webcasts and recordings.

Tia Donaldson, a former IT intern, had this to say about the experience:

"Even if you have no background in politics or government, just being in the vicinity (of it) has taught me a lot. Not only have I learned a considerable amount about government, but I have also learned more skills I can apply to my field of Information Technology."

Interns earn an $800 biweekly stipend and benefit from scholarship and academic credit opportunities, professional development, community involvement and networking.

Qualified candidates can be of any major and must be at least a college sophomore. Recent college graduates, as well as graduate and law school students, are encouraged to apply. Positions are open to Indiana residents, as well as nonresidents who attend a college or university in Indiana.

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 2023.

The deadline to apply is Oct. 31. To learn more about the different internship opportunities and to apply, visit
