Deadline

Varies

The Kevin McCarthy US Congressman Internship is available to students enrolled in college, in their first year of post-secondary studies. You must have a minimum GPA of 3.0, submit a 250 word essay detailing their interest in the summer internship program and what they expect to learn from the experience and possess good writing and computer skills to be considered for this position. Preference will be given to residents of California's 23rd Congressional District (which includes most of Kern and Tulare counties and part of Los Angeles County); however, all applications will be considered. As an intern, you will gain understanding of the core functions of a congressional office, including responding to constituent inquiries, researching legislation, developing public policy, and observing the legislative process firsthand by attending committee meetings, hearings, and a variety of lecture series.
