Grassley Spring Internships Now Available
Nov 04, 2019
WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley is reaching out to college-aged Iowans with internship opportunities in his Iowa and Washington, D.C. offices.
Internships are available in Grassley offices in Washington, D.C., Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and Waterloo. The 2020 Washington, D.C., spring internship program runs from January 6 through May 22. Internships in Grassley’s Iowa offices are flexible and can often accommodate the demands of a student’s class and work schedule.
Washington, D.C. interns assist staff members with administrative, legislative and communications work, including that of Grassley’s staff on the Senate Finance Committee, where he serves as chairman. Iowa interns work with caseworkers to assist Iowans with issues involving federal agencies, interact with constituents over the phone and in person and attend community and business meetings.
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. Internships in my offices are available to students in many areas of study,” Grassley said.
Applications are available on Grassley’s website at https://www.grassley.senate.gov/students/internships. For additional information and to submit internship applications, students should contact Joe Dillon at email@example.com or call 202-224-3744.
Below are testimonials from recent interns:
“As a press intern, I shadowed Senator Grassley while he gave honest, to-the-point answers to reporters’ questions. For a kid growing up in Iowa, following Senator Grassley around to interviews was like sitting next to LeBron James at a postgame press conference.” – John, Oskaloosa
“I received an invaluable educational experience from my internship, changing how I saw the political process.” – Grace, Independence
