Office of Senator Joni Ernst Accepting Fall Internship Applications

Deadline to Apply: August 1st

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) announced that her office is seeking Iowa college students and recent graduates for internship opportunities in her Washington, D.C. and state offices during the upcoming fall semester. Applications are due on August 1st and can be found on Senator Ernst’s website here.

“I encourage young Iowans who are passionate about public service to consider applying for an internship in our Iowa or Washington, D.C. offices,” said Senator Ernst. “Internships are a great opportunity for students to serve Iowans through constituent outreach and services, public policy, and communications.”

Interns will have the opportunity to experience a wide-range of responsibilities. In the Iowa offices, interns will assist constituents and attend local events. In the Washington, D.C. office, interns will learn about the legislative process, give tours of the U.S. Capitol and help with constituent services.

Internship applications are available here. Applications can be submitted to Ernst_Internships@Ernst.Senate.Gov. For student/parent questions, please contact Tyler Brown at Tyler_Brown@Ernst.Senate.Gov by early August. All media inquiries should be directed to Press@Ernst.Senate.Gov.

Senator Ernst was elected as the first woman to serve in federal elected office from the State of Iowa and also became the first female combat veteran elected to serve in the United States Senate. In Washington, Senator Ernst serves on four Senate committees of importance to Iowans: Armed Services; Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship.
