Thank you for your interest in my internship program. An internship in Washington, D.C. provides students with practical and educational opportunities to participate in the daily operation of a senate office and observe how the legislative process works first hand.
Interns are responsible for a wide range of jobs including constituent services, media activities, and research for staff on various issues. Interns will have the opportunity to work with Enzi staff in legislative capacities.
Legislative intern duties range from clerical tasks such as sorting faxes and mail, making copies, and running errands to leading Capitol tours, writing policy or hearing summaries, and conducting research for legislative aides. Interns will also have the opportunity to observe floor proceedings, and attend committee hearings and lectures.
Priority is given to students from Wyoming, or those studying in Wyoming, who have achieved at least sophomore status at an accredited university or college. In addition, students must have achieved a Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher. Students in all areas of study are welcome to apply.
Housing and stipend
Housing is not provided, however the intern coordinator will supply information on a variety of housing options. In addition, a stipend of $1,600 per month is paid to help defray the costs of living in Washington, D.C.
Many departments offer college credit for educational internships. Enzi interns are encouraged to pursue this opportunity within their program of study. They are typically eligible for 3 to 15 college credits during their internship.
Senator Enzi offers three internship terms throughout the year.
