WASHINGTON Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said today that summer internships for college-age Iowans are available, and applications are due March 15.
Internships are available in Grassley's Washington, D.C., office as well as his offices in Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and Waterloo. There are two, six-week summer sessions. The first session will run from May 27 to July 3 and the second session will run from July 7 to Aug. 15.
Interns will be placed in one of three departments: administrative, legislative or communications. An internship allows for a wide range of learning experience and exposure for students on Capitol Hill. A firsthand account of a Grassley internship can be read here.
Grassley said he encourages young Iowans who are interested in learning more about the government to apply. "Interning 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 experience. Internships in my offices are available to students in all areas of study," Grassley said.
Application forms are available on Grassley's 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.
