Mark Udall's regional offices throughout Colorado and the office in Washington, D.C., are accepting internship applications from undergraduate students and recent graduates for the summer.
The internship program offers students the opportunity for public service and to learn hands-on about constituent services and the legislative process.
State interns will assist state staff as they help constituents resolve issues with federal agencies like the Department of Veterans Affairs, meet with local partners, represent the senator at community outreach events, and draft writing projects such as letters of support for grant applications and congressional inquiries to federal agencies.
Interns in the Washington, D.C., office will attend committee hearings and briefings, compose memos for legislative staff, answer phones, research legislative issues, help with press outreach, lead Capitol tours and participate in congressional events.
The deadline to apply is April 15; finalists will be notified of a decision by April 26. Interested students can apply at http://markudall.senate.gov/students. Internships are available on either a full-time or part-time basis. This is an unpaid position, although college credit may be arranged through your school.
If you have any questions regarding the internship program, please email DCInternships@markudall.senate.gov for the D.C. program, and COInternships@markudall.senate.gov for the state program.
