Congressional Internships in Washington, D.C.


  • Summer 2020 Application Deadline: Varies by office
  • Full and Part Time Positions Available
  • Most are unpaid


Typically, Congressional Offices will give preference to internship candidates from their State (Senate) or District (House).

To apply to an internship in a Congressional Office, the best place to find the application is on the Member's website. Click here to figure out who represents your home state and district in Congress. Once you have found your Members, search "[Member Name] Washington DC Internship" on Google to find the application page. You should also check The House Vacancy Announcement and Placement Service website and The Senate Employment Bulletin for additional postings.

Additionally, Baylor students receive preference with the offices of Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz as well as with the office of Congressman Bill Flores (TX-17).

Students are also highly encouraged to apply to internships in offices outside of those detailed above and should not feel limited to their home offices or those from Texas. Many, many Baylor students have been accepted as interns in offices outside of those parameters!
