WASHINGTON — Applications for summer internships with Senator Chuck Grassley are due March 15.

 

Internships are available for college age Iowans in Grassley offices in Washington, D.C., Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and Waterloo.  There are two sessions for 2012 summer internships.  The first is May 21 through July 3.  The second is July 5 through August 17.

 

Senate 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 video about Grassley internships produced by last year’s summer interns can be seen here.

 

Grassley said he encourages young Iowans who are interested in learning more about 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 intern_applications@grassley.senate.gov.  For additional information, send messages to intern_applications@grassley.senate.gov or call 202-224-3744.
