Interested in interning on Capitol Hill? College of Arts & Sciences students are encouraged to apply for positions with the House Budget Committee Internship Program, where they will gain hands-on experience with the operations of the federal government.

“An internship with the House Budget Committee provides students with a unique opportunity to experience first-hand the federal legislative process by working on Capitol Hill. The Budget Committee Internship Program is an exciting and educational experience that offers broad insight into the legislative policy-making process while allowing students the chance to apply classroom learning to real Congressional work,” according to the program’s website.

“As an intern with the House Budget Committee, you will provide vital support by assisting Committee staff in assignments that include compiling the daily Budget News Clips, sorting and processing mail, answering the phones, assembling reference material, administrative support, and special projects. Much of the work you will do is actual work performed on a daily basis by other members of the Committee staff.”

“Full and part-time positions are available throughout the year to students currently enrolled in college. College students pursuing a Political Science and/or Economics major, or those interested in government, are encouraged to apply. Internships during the school year last a full semester. Summer internships are also available. Course credit may be available through your school. Paid internships are available to any student working full time and who is not receiving course credits.”

Applications are available on the House Budget Committee website. Deadlines are Nov. 1 for spring term, March 1 for summer term, and July 15 for fall term.
