Senate offering IT internships

Monday, September 11, 2023

The Indiana Senate has opened applications for anyone interested in interning during the 2024 legislative session.

Interns selected for the program have an opportunity to be an eyewitness to new laws being crafted that impact Hoosiers across the state.

One of the internship opportunities includes serving in the Senate's information technology (IT) office.

IT interns help senators and staff troubleshoot any technology issues that may arise during the session.

They also run cameras and other equipment during committee meetings so hearings can be livestreamed online.

The IT internship is ideal for any student with an informatics, computer science or technology background.

Other Senate internship opportunities include working in the communications, legal, legislative, page or policy offices during the upcoming session.

Candidates must be at least a college sophomore, recent college graduate, graduate student or law school student. Any Indiana resident or nonresident attending any college or university in the state can apply. Students and recent graduates with or seeking any degree can apply.

Those selected earn a $900 biweekly stipend and can gain scholarship and academic credit opportunities, professional development and networking.

Internships in the Senate are full-time positions at the Statehouse in Indianapolis and typically start with an orientation in late December and conclude at the end of the legislative session in March 2024.

The deadline to apply for the internship program is Oct. 31.
