Senate Majority Internships - Legislative

Senate Majority Internships - Legislative

Friday, August 26, 2022

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

Legislative interns are paired with a legislative assistant, who serves under either one or two state senators, to gain knowledge of state government and work alongside them as they navigate the legislative process.

Some of the responsibilities of a legislative intern include:

  • Tracking and analyzing bill data;
  • Providing constituent services;
  • Staffing Senate committee hearings and meetings; and
  • Conducting legislative and policy research.

Alexa Walden, who served as a legislative intern during the 2019 session and now works full-time as a Senate Majority legislative assistant, said the following on her internship experience:

“Interning with the Indiana State Senate has allowed me to grow, professionally, in a way I never could have imagined. The experiences here are invaluable and will set you up for a career of success in any sector. I am thankful that this internship provided me with the skills I need to be a great Legislative Assistant to my current Senators, as well as a hardworking team player.”

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
