House GOP accepting internship applications

Indiana House Republicans are now accepting internship applications for the 2018 legislative session.

This paid program during the spring semester gives college students the chance to work one-on-one with state legislators while seeing firsthand how laws are made, said state District 69 Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour.

Internships are open to college sophomores, juniors and seniors, graduate students and recent graduates of all majors. Students can apply for internships in a variety of areas, focusing on legislative, communications, policy, fiscal policy and technology. These are full-time positions, Monday through Friday, lasting from January through mid-March.

Besides getting paid $750 every two weeks, students can earn academic credit through their college or university and are eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate or graduate expenses.

Lucas said this one-of-a-kind experience also offers networking opportunities and could open the door to a career.
