Launch your career with a Grassley Internship
BUTLER COUNTY, IOWA – U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is accepting applications for his Spring 2024 internship program, an opportunity for college-age Iowans to learn firsthand about our federal government.
Internships are available in Grassley’s offices in Washington, D.C., Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City and Waterloo. The Spring 2024 Washington internship program runs from January 2 – May 24. The Spring 2024 Iowa internship offers a flexible schedule and can often be adjusted to accommodate each student’s class and work obligations. To date, nearly 1,000 individuals have participated.
“Nothing compares to real life work experience. That’s why every intern in my office has their own work assignment and responsibilities,” Grassley said. “In addition to learning the ins and outs of a congressional office, interns gain access to a strong network of professionals. I’m proud that many alumni of the Grassley internship program have gone on to excel in a variety of fields, including business, health care, technology, education, law and public service.”
Washington interns have the chance to immerse themselves in the policymaking process and work closely with our nation’s legislators. They gain invaluable professional experience through supporting permanent staff on administrative, legislative and communications projects. These interns may assist with local and national interviews, attend congressional hearings, briefings and votes, and visit the Senate floor.
Iowa interns work alongside Grassley’s constituent services specialists and regional directors, who play a pivotal role in the two-way representative government process. These interns attend community and business meetings and assist Iowans with issues involving federal agencies. With six offices across the state, this is an excellent option for students to supplement their studies with an impactful internship close to campus or home.
