Deadline

The five members of the United States House of Representatives and the two senators from Connecticut, in partnership with the Honors Program and Department of Political Science, are offering students interested in the workings of the US government the chance to spend the entire spring semester working in one of their offices in Washington. As a full-time Congressional intern, UConn interns become part of that particular congressperson’s team of staffers. Interns participate in staff meetings, attend committee meetings, research and write reports, and visit other offices on Capitol Hill. Interns also assist with your office’s constituent services including helping manage telephone and mail correspondence between your congressperson and his/her constituents, as well as leading constituent tours of the U.S. Capitol Building. Interns may even have the chance to contribute to the writing of new legislation. Interns work full-time and as such, are fully integrated into the operations of the office. This opportunity provides not only first-hand knowledge about our federal government, but also a distinctive professional experience. Governmental internships can be practical experience for students of all majors and especially for those interested in political science, history, and law.
