U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., is accepting internship applications from undergraduate students, recent graduates and graduate students for his Washington, D.C., and Colorado offices.
In Colorado, internships are available year-round in the following locations: Colorado Springs, Denver, Durango, Fort Collins, Grand Junction and Pueblo.
The Washington, D.C., interns attend hearings and briefings, research legislative issues, meet with Congressional officials and staff, conduct U.S. Capitol tours and draft correspondence, according to a news release from Bennet’s office.
Colorado interns research legislative issues, draft correspondence and support constituent advocates as they meet with and assist Coloradans who are having trouble navigating the federal government.
“Interns are an integral part of our office, providing essential support as we work to serve Coloradans,” Bennet said in the news release. “Our Colorado and Washington internship programs provide great opportunities to gain first-hand knowledge about issues that affect Coloradans.”
He added, “Interns receive an in-depth view of the legislative process and gain direct experience serving Colorado constituents, providing a unique experience for any young person interested in public service.”
Internships are available on either a full-time or part-time basis, and they are unpaid positions.
Interested students and recent graduates should apply online at www.bennet.senate.gov/services/internships.
The deadline to apply for an internship in Washington, D.C., for either summer session is March 15. Summer internships are divided into two sessions: Session One: May 20-July 3, and Session Two: July 7-Aug. 22.
For internships in one of Bennet’s Colorado offices, applicants will be considered on a rolling basis and can apply any time.
