(Washington, D.C.) - U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., is encouraging college students who are interested in witnessing the workings of national government firsthand to apply for a summer internship in his Washington D.C. office.
"An internship on Capitol Hill is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Interns have the chance to meet remarkable people, gain experience and knowledge in their field of study, observe our nationís government at work, and experience the energy and excitement of Washington D.C. life," said Enzi. "Opportunities abound for students who complete a Capitol Hill internship. Nearly half of my Washington D.C. staff members were previously congressional interns."
Summer internships run from June 2 through Aug. 29. To be considered, applicants should submit all application materials by March 13.
Interns are responsible for a broad range of duties, some of which include constituent services, Capitol tours and research on various issues. Interns also have the opportunity to attend floor proceedings, committee hearings and lectures given by government leaders.
Enzi interns receive a monthly stipend of $1,600. Many colleges also offer school credit for internship programs, and Enzi encourages candidates to look into the specific programs provided by each school.
Students seeking a summer internship in Washington, D.C. can access the online application at www.enzi.senate.gov. Completed applications can be submitted online or faxed to 202-228-0359.
