Grassley fall internships available for college-age Iowans, application deadline extended to Aug. 1

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said that fall internships for college-age Iowans are available, and applications are due Aug. 1.

Internships are available in Grassley’s Washington, D.C., office as well as his offices in Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and Waterloo.  The semester-long internship will run from Aug. 18 through Dec. 19.

Interns in the Washington, D.C., office will be placed in one of three departments:  administrative, legislative or communications. 

An internship allows for a wide range of learning experience and exposure for students on Capitol Hill. 

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 all areas of study,” Grassley said.

Application forms are available on Grassley’s website and in Grassley’s offices in Iowa.  Because of security-related delays in postal mail delivery to U.S. Senate office buildings, internship applications should be emailed to intern_applications@grassley.senate.gov or faxed to 202-224-5136.
