Applications are due on December 1st

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) announced that her office is seeking Iowa college students for internship opportunities in her Washington, D.C. and state offices. The upcoming spring semester internship will run January through May, and applications are due December 1st. Internship applications can be found on Senator Ernst’s website here.

“Internships are a unique opportunity for students to learn firsthand about the Senate and the importance of serving the people of Iowa in our federal government,” said Senator Ernst. “Whether in Iowa or in Washington, D.C., internships are an outstanding way for our future generations to learn about the issues folks are concerned about and to identify ways to work together. I encourage students interested in public service to consider an internship in one of our offices.”

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 Capitol building tours and assist with constituent services.

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 major importance to Iowans: Armed Services; Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry; Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship. In addition, Senator Ernst continues to serve as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Iowa Army National Guard.

Internship applications are available here. Submit applications to Ernst_Internships@Ernst.Senate.Gov. For student/parent questions, please contact Josie Beecher at Josie_Beecher@Ernst.Senate.Gov by December 1st. All media inquiries should be directed to Press@Ernst.Senate.Gov.
