WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley said today that summer internships for college-aged Iowans are available. Applications are due Thursday, March 15.

Internships are available in Grassley offices in Washington, D.C., Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and Waterloo. The summer internship program is divided into two separate sessions. The first session runs from May 21 through June 29 and the second runs from July 10 to August 10.

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 chairman.

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 many areas of study,” Grassley said.

Application forms are available on Grassley’s Senate website and in Grassley’s Iowa offices. For additional information and to submit internship applications, students should contact Josie Wagler at josie_wagler@grassley.senate.gov or call 202-224-3744.

Below are testimonials from recent interns:

“Interning on Capitol Hill gave me an entirely new perspective and appreciation for congressional staffers and leaders. I learned more in my sixteen-week internship than I ever could have in a classroom.” – Julia, Durant

“This internship has surely given me beneficial knowledge that I will take with me throughout my professional career.” – Patrick, Waterloo

“From agriculture to international affairs to healthcare, the range of topics I learn about every day is incredibly diverse.” – Andre, Des Moines

Grassley’s internship program has been helping Iowa students learn and gain valuable work experience for many years.
