Political Internship

Congressional Leadership Fund - Rochester, IL

Temporary

The Congressional Leadership Fund is currently seeking students interested in learning more about campaigning and effective public communications. Student interns will gain invaluable knowledge about the democratic process and work to become adept communicators through hands on experience with elected officials, candidates, and the general public. The internship opportunities for this Summer are open to any student; however, they must apply and be accepted. Hours are flexible, but students must be able to commit to at least 10 hours per week and are responsible for their own transportation.

The 2018 election cycle promises to be one of the most contested elections in history. The Congressional Leadership Fund will be an important part of this election and you will have a firsthand view of what it takes to win a campaign.

Eligible students will be provided with academic credit or service hours. While these positions are unpaid, they will provide political opportunities not available elsewhere and upon completion of the program, a letter of recommendation to a future employer or college will be provided.
