Loebsack encourages students to apply for fall internships

Published: Wednesday, July 30, 2014 9:25 a.m. CDT

Congressman Dave Loebsack, D-Iowa, announced his office is now accepting applications from Iowa college students to participate in a Congressional internship program in his Washington, D.C., office. 

The internship program is open to undergraduate students and recent graduates, regardless of major. Fall internships typically begin around Labor Day and run through the end of the year, though some positions are available immediately and specific dates can be set for each individual.

“As a former educator, I have seen the benefits that internships can provide by giving students a firsthand look into the government process,” Loebsack said. “I encourage all hardworking, motivated students and recent graduates to apply.”

Interns will have the opportunity to learn about the legislative process and the federal government by working closely with the legislative, communications and constituent services staff members. Interested candidates should email their cover letter, resume, a short writing sample and letter of recommendation to LoebsackInternship@mail.house.gov.
