Interns receive biweekly compensation of $750.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) - State Rep. Randy Lyness (R-West Harrison) said time is running out for local students to apply for a paid internship with the Indiana House of Representatives in Indianapolis.

Lyness said the deadline to apply is Oct. 31 and interviews are already taking place. He said interested college students, recent graduates, graduate students and law school students should not wait to submit their applications as positions are filling quickly.

"Getting involved and learning more about state government is a unique experience many students would enjoy and benefit from," Lyness said. "Interns make connections with leaders from across Indiana, and they get to see how we are all impacted by laws involving education, health care, agriculture, and so much more. With the deadline fast approaching, those interested should apply today."

Interns receive biweekly compensation of $750, and can earn academic credit through their college or university. Interns are also eligible for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.  

According to Lyness, internships are full-time, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through April 2021. He said positions are available in a variety of areas, including legislative operations, communications and media relations, policy and fiscal policy. Previous political or government experience is not required.

The legislature may make certain changes to the internship program due to the impacts of COVID-19 and social distancing requirements, but any adjustments will be communicated to candidates and intern hires.

Lyness said all majors are encouraged to apply before the Oct. 31 deadline at
