We are now accepting internship program applications for Winter 2022/Spring 2023. The deadline to submit an application for both programs is December 10, 2022.
For questions about the Washington, DC internship program, please call my Washington, D.C. office at 202-225-4165. For questions about the in-district internship program, please call my Wilmington, DE office at 302-830-2330.
In the Washington, D.C. office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students and recent graduates. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. when not in session. Interns in all of our offices are eligible to receive stipends.
In Washington, D.C., interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings, and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House of Representatives. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.
In the District office, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters and assisting with media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent case work or work on District-based projects of importance.
To apply, please send one compiled PDF of your resume, a cover letter that describes why you want to intern for Congresswoman Blunt Rochester, and the contact information for 2 references to LBR.Internship@mail.house.gov, indicating the office (DC or Wilmington) and the term you are applying for in the subject line. For example: “DC Spring 2023 Internship – NAME.” Please note in the cover letter or body of the email if the internship is for school credit.
No phone calls, emails, or drop-ins please.
