WASHINGTON Senator Chuck Grassley said today that summer internships for college-age Iowans are available and applications are due March 22.
These Senate internships are available in Grassley offices in Washington, D.C., Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City, and Waterloo. The summer intern program in the Washington office has two sessions. The first is May 20 through July 3. The second is July 8 through August 23.
Interns assist staff members with administrative, legislative and communications work, including that of Grassley's staff on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, where he serves as Ranking Member. A firsthand account of a Grassley internship can be seen here.
Grassley said he encourages young Iowans who are interested in learning more about the government to apply. "Working in a congressional office is a good way for college students and new graduates to learn more about the legislative branch of the federal government while gaining valuable work experience. Internships in my offices are available to students in all areas of study," he said.
Application forms are available on Grassley's Senate website and in Grassley's offices in Iowa. Due to security-related delays in postal mail delivery to U.S. Senate office buildings, internship applications should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 202-224-5136. For additional information, send messages to email@example.com. gov or call 202-224-3744.
