Crapo Encourages Students to Apply for Senate Internship Program

Deadline to Apply for Summer and Fall Semesters is March 1

Washington, D.C. -The deadline is rapidly approaching for Idaho's students to apply for internship opportunities in U.S. Senator Mike Crapo's Washington, D.C., office, or one of his six regional offices throughout Idaho. Students have until March 1 to submit an application to be considered for an internship position for both the summer and fall semesters.

The internship experience provides Idaho students a unique opportunity to learn about Congress and the legislative process firsthand.  Interns assist the Senator and his staff with legislative research, constituent services and communications operations, as well as attend congressional hearings and provide tours of the U.S. Capitol to visiting Idahoans.

To learn more about internships offered through Crapo's office and access application materials, please visit the intern section of the website at https://www.crapo.senate.gov/services/interns.cfm.  Due to unanticipated delays in mail delivery on Capitol Hill, students who are applying are encouraged to email, not mail, their materials to Crapo's D.C. office.  Applications can be addressed to the attention of Katie Amacio, Internship Coordinator, and emailed to Kathleen_Amacio@crapo.senate.gov.  Further questions can be directed to the intern coordinator in the Washington, D.C., office, 202-224-6142.
