The deadline for applications is November 20th. “An internship in my office is rich with opportunity and provides students with firsthand knowledge and experience,” Enzi said. “Interns are an important part of the office. They also have the chance to meet some remarkable people, work on projects and experience the dynamic of living in Washington, D.C.” The internships, which include hands-on, individualized activities, offer experience in the heart of the nation’s government. Interns are able to network, develop crucial job skills and cultivate meaningful experiences to further their education and career goals. Interns will have the opportunity to give U.S. Capitol Building tours, write policy and hearing summaries, prepare legislative memos, conduct research for legislative aides, observe floor proceedings and attend committee hearings and lectures. Interns receive a monthly stipend to defray the cost of living in Washington, D.C. and can also coordinate receiving college credit for the internship. Priority is given to students from Wyoming, or those studying in Wyoming. The spring 2016 internship runs from January 4th to May 20th. Applicants should have achieved at least sophomore status at an accredited university or college. Individuals interested in an internship with Senator Enzi’s office should apply online.
