If you are a college student interested in witnessing the workings of national government firsthand, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., has just the opportunity for you. Enzi is now accepting applications for fall internships in his Washington D.C. office.
"An internship on Capitol Hill is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Interns have the chance to meet remarkable people, gain experience and knowledge in their field of study, observe our countryís 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."
Fall internships run from Sept. 8 through Dec. 19. To be considered, applicants should submit all application materials by July 11.
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.
