Qualified candidates must be at least a college sophomore. Recent college graduates as well as graduate school and law school students are also encouraged to apply. Positions are open to Indiana residents and non-residents who attend a college or university located within the state.

Benefits include a $700 bi-weekly stipend, scholarship and academic credit opportunities, professional development, community involvement and networking.

Senate internships are full-time positions at the Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis that begin with a mandatory orientation in late December and conclude at the end of the legislative session in April 2017.

“This internship offers a hands-on experience to students and recent graduates interested in the legislative process,” Mishler said. “I encourage any college student interested in public service to apply.”

Mishler added that more information and applications for these full-time, spring semester internships with the Indiana Senate Republican Caucus can be found online at www.IndianaSenateRepublicans.com/intern-program.

The deadline to apply is Oct. 31.
