Spring 2020 applications open August 27th and expire September 25th.
The Congressional Internship Program is a scholarship and nomination program designed to enhance students’ opportunities to work with Tennessee’s Legislators in Washington, D.C. Students who are selected to participate will be nominated for an internship (final selections and agreements are determined by individual offices and nominees) and awarded a scholarship to offset costs of living in Washington D.C. for the duration of the internship.
Selected interns work closely with legislative staff on a variety of projects, as well as assist with clerical tasks, depending upon the office in which they are placed. Summer internships will last approximately six – ten weeks and will begin either in May or July. Fall and Spring internships will last approximately thirteen – fifteen weeks and will begin in September or February, depending on the semester and the office. Academic credit is an option, depending on coursework and major.
