The deadline for applications to the Congressional Internship Program has been extended to Jan. 15. The Congressional Internship Program provides students in good standing the opportunity to work with Tennessee legislators in Washington, D.C., for approximately six weeks during the months of May and June.
Interns will work closely with legislative staff on a variety of projects, as well as assist with clerical tasks, depending upon the office in which they are placed. The internships are unpaid and students are responsible for arranging their housing and travel. A limited number of need-based scholarships may be available.
Eligible students must have sixty or more credit hours and a cumulative grade point average of 3.0. The program is open to students of all majors. To apply, students must fill out the online application form and submit a resume and two reference forms through the UT Career Services’ HIRE-A-VOL database located at http://career.utk.edu.
