Apply for an Internship
Are you a college student interested in learning more about the workings of the United States Senate and federal legislation affecting Arkansans? If so, you should consider applying to intern in any of my seven offices across Arkansas or my Washington, D.C. office.
By assisting my state staff, interns have the opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge about how a Senator’s office provides constituent services, interacts with the community and serves as a liaison to the Washington, D.C. office.
Interns in the Washington, D.C. office will have an opportunity to learn about the legislative process and the federal government by working closely with the legislative, communications and constituent services staff members.
Along with this incredible experience, interns in my office will receive academic credit for their work.
During the summer, we offer one summer long internship in our seven state offices and two five week long summer sessions in our Washington, D.C. Office. The 2015 summer sessions in Washington are scheduled for May 26th– June 26th and June 29th - July 31st. Internships in Arkansas are May 26th – July 31st. The deadline to apply is March 10, 2015.
All internships in my office are unpaid and candidates who are chosen for the Washington, D.C. office will be responsible for paying their travel and living expenses.
Our internship program is open to all area college students, regardless of major.
Candidates must complete at least two years of college work prior to their internship and must either be a U.S. citizen or are in the U.S. legally.
