Grassley fall internships available

Jul 17, 2014

WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said fall internships for college-age Iowans are available, and applications are due Aug. 1.

Internships are available in Grassley’s Washington, D.C., office as well as his offices in Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and Waterloo.

The semester-long internship will run from Aug. 18 through Dec. 19.

Interns in the Washington, D.C., office will be placed in one of three departments: administrative, legislative or communications. An internship allows for a wide range of learning experience and exposure for students on Capitol Hill. A firsthand account of a Grassley internship can be read at www.grassley.senate.gov/sites/default/files/about/upload/Pages-from-Nov-2012-Mag.pdf.

Grassley said he encourages young Iowans who are interested in learning more about the government to apply.

“Interning in a congressional office is a good way for college students and new graduates to learn more about the legislative branch of the federal government while gaining valuable experience,” Grassley said. “Internships in my offices are available to students in all areas of study.”

Application forms are available on Grassley’s website at www.grassley.senate.gov and in Grassley’s offices in Iowa.

Due to security-related delays in postal mail delivery to U.S. Senate office buildings, internship applications should be emailed to intern_applications@grassley.senate.gov or faxed to 202-224-5136.

For additional information, email intern_applications@grassley.senate.gov or call 202-224-3744.
