STATEHOUSE (Aug. 29, 2023) – State Rep. Chris May (R-Bedford) is seeking interns to join him at the Statehouse during the 2024 legislative session.
He said House interns will be paid $900 bi-weekly as they work in downtown Indianapolis during session, which starts in January and concludes mid-March.
"We've had many interns use this program as a stepping stone to successful jobs in both the public and private sectors," May said. "With a limited number of available positions, interested students shouldn't wait to apply."
May said internships are open to college students and recent graduates of all majors. The paid, spring-semester intern positions are full time, Monday through Friday, and include free parking, career and professional development assistance, enrollment access to an Indiana government class, and opportunities to earn academic credits through the student's college or university. Interns are also eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.
May said students can apply for internships in a variety of departments related to their field of study, including legislative operations, policy, and communications and media relations.
Applications are available online at indianahouserepublicans.com/internship and are due by Oct. 31.
