Messmer: Indiana Senate Republicans Offering Paid Internships

Statehouse — The Indiana Senate Republican Caucus is offering paid spring-semester internships in its communications, information technology, legal, legislative and policy offices during the 2022 session of the Indiana General Assembly, said State Sen. Mark Messmer (R-Jasper).

Qualified candidates may be of any major and must be at least a college sophomore. Recent college graduates, as well as graduate and law school students, are also encouraged to apply. Positions are open to Indiana residents, as well as nonresidents who attend a college or university in Indiana.

Interns earn a $750 biweekly stipend and benefit from scholarship and academic credit opportunities, professional development, community involvement and networking.

Senate internships are full-time positions at the Statehouse in downtown Indianapolis that typically begin with a mandatory orientation in late December and conclude at the end of the legislative session in March 2022.

"From bill draft to final passage, Senate interns play an active role in the legislative process," Messmer said. "The General Assembly addresses many issues that impact communities across our district and it's always great to have local students involved. Southern Indiana has been well represented in previous intern classes and it is my hope we will have a few this coming session as well."
