In both our Houston and Washington, DC offices, there are 3 sessions for internships: spring, summer, and fall. Internships are targeted to college students and recently graduated students looking to gain experience in and learn more about a congressional office. Paid internships are available in both offices.
The dates of our 2021 internships are: January 4 – May 14 (spring), June 1 – August 13 (summer), and August 30 – December 10 (fall). Dates will change each calendar year. Exact start and end dates, as well as day-to-day hours, can be flexible to accommodate course schedules, if needed.
The following are the internship application deadlines:
Summer 2021: Applications for summer internships are now closed.
Fall 2021: Applications for fall internships are due July 25, 2021, at 6 P.M. ET.
In Washington, DC, interns are asked to assist with answering phones, researching legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attending hearings and briefings, and answering constituent letters on various issues before the House, among other relevant day-to-day tasks.
In the Houston office, interns are asked to assist with media clips, constituent case work, district-based events, answering phones, and writing letters, among other relevant day-to-day tasks.
In addition to submitting an internship application form, applicants must also submit their resume and cover letter in one document to email@example.com. The email subject line should be formatted as ‘[First Name][Last Name][Season][Year] Application’.

DISCLAIMER: An application will not be considered complete until the applicant’s form, cover letter, and resume are submitted. Once the application deadline has passed, applications will not be accepted for that internship semester.
