I am honored to welcome North Dakota students and recent graduates to join my Senate offices in Washington, D.C. and in the state to take part in our internship program. 

Interns assist with research issues, legislative tracking, administrative work, communications, and constituent service. The interns working in the DC office will receive extensive education on the history of the United States Capitol, as well as the city itself. Among the primary duties of DC interns, they will also serve as guides to guests visiting the U.S. Capitol. Interns in the state will have the opportunity to attend public events with civic leaders, constituent groups, and officials at the state and local level. 


Applicants must have completed at least one year of study in an institution of higher education. North Dakota residents and/or students studying at a North Dakota college or university receive priority in the selection process. 

Course Credit

Students are encouraged to seek course credit for their internship.


Interns receive a fixed salary.
