WASHINGTON — Senator Chuck Grassley said today that internships in his Washington, D.C., and Iowa offices are available for college-age Iowans.

Grassley said he encourages all young Iowans who are interested in learning more about government to apply.  The next internship session begins in January.  Applications should be submitted by October 15.

“Spending a semester 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,” Grassley said.  “Exposure to the work of a Senate office can enhance a college education and make students more competitive job applicants when they graduate.  These internships are available to students in all areas of study.”

Full- and part-time internships are available for Iowans in Grassley’s offices in Washington, D.C., Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and Waterloo.  The next session of internships runs from January through May.  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.

This summer, Grassley interns in the Washington office produced a video describing their experience.  Click here to watch.

Application forms are available on Grassley’s Senate website, in the placement offices of many Iowa colleges and universities, 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 faxed to 202-224-5136 or emailed to  For more information, send messages to or call 202-224-3744.
