Senate GOP accepting internship applications

The Indiana Senate Republican Caucus is offering paid spring semester internships during the 2018 legislative session to college students, recent graduates, graduate students and law school students.

Internships with the Indiana Senate Republican Caucus relate to various fields of study, including legislative, legal, policy, communications, multimedia and information technology, said state District 44 Sen. Eric Koch, R-Bedford, who announced the program in a news release.

Benefits include a $750 biweekly stipend, scholarship and academic credit opportunities, professional development, community involvement and networking.

Qualified candidates must be at least a college sophomore. Positions are open to Indiana residents and nonresidents who attend a college or university located within the state.

Senate internships are full-time positions at the Statehouse in Indianapolis that begin with a mandatory orientation in late December and conclude at the end of the legislative session in March 2018.

Interns are exposed to many employment opportunities through a series of panels and events. In addition, more than 80 percent of full-time senate staff are former interns.

The deadline to apply is Oct. 31.
