U.S. Senate Internship
Senator Risch’s internship program is a great opportunity for students to learn first-hand about public service and the workings of the U.S. Senate. Interns gain knowledge of the federal legislative process and the day-to-day work that goes into researching, drafting, and passing a bill in the Senate. They will learn about the issues that are of great concern to Idaho constituents and to Senator Risch.
The program is open to undergraduate and graduate students of all majors, and while preference is given to Idaho residents who are a Junior or Senior, Senator Risch encourages all students to apply.
Senator Risch's internship program provides a unique experience that invites students interested in public service to observe U.S. democracy at work and participate in the legislative process.
Intern projects include, but are not limited to: legislative research, constituent services, and administrative tasks.
