Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Congressional Internship

February 07, 2013

The Congressional Internship Program provides college students with a paid work placement in a Congressional Office or Federal Agency for a period of twelve weeks (Spring/Fall) or eight weeks (Summer). This unmatched experience allows students to learn first hand about our nation’s legislative process.

This comprehensive three-prong approach provides extraordinary learning and networking opportunities for students.

  • Strong analytical and writing skills
  • Active participation in public and/or community service activities
