Deadline Extended: Grassley Fall Internship Applications Due August 1Written by Theresa Rose on July 16, 2015
WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said today that the deadline for fall internships for college-age Iowans has been extended. Applications will now be accepted through August 1, 2015.
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 internships will run from August 18 through December 18.
Interns assist staff members with administrative, legislative and communications work, including that of Grassley’s staff on the Committee on the Judiciary, where he serves as Chairman. An internship allows for a wide range of learning experience and exposure for students on Capitol Hill. A firsthand account of a Grassley internship can be read here.
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. Due to security-related delays in postal mail delivery to U.S. Senate office buildings, internship applications should be emailed to email@example.com or faxed to 202-224-5136.
