INDIANAPOLIS - Southeast Indiana is home to many talented young adults preparing to launch their careers, and the Indiana House of Representatives is a great place to get started. College students, recent college graduates, and law school and graduate students are encouraged to apply now for internships at the Statehouse.

In addition to work experience, students can earn academic credit through their school, bolster their resumes and make professional connections with leaders from all parts of Indiana as they prepare to launch careers in both private and public sectors.

While networking and building skills are vital, it is also important to earn while you learn. Interns will receive an $800 bi-weekly stipend and the opportunity to apply for a $3,000 scholarship, which can be used toward undergraduate or graduate expenses. Interns will work in person at the Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, from January through April of next year.

All college sophomores, juniors and seniors, recent college graduates, graduate and law school students of all majors are encouraged to apply, and political or government experience is not needed.

Apply soon as interviews are taking place. To learn more and apply online, visit indianahouserepublicans.com/internship. To learn more about the experience from former interns, visit the Indiana House Republican Internship Facebook page.
