Thank you for your interest in Senator Paul’s internship program! Senator Paul is enthusiastic about the number of young adults who wish to become involved in today’s legislative process. Internships are offered in the spring, fall, and summer. The summer program is divided into two sessions: mid-May to the end of June and the beginning of July to mid-August.

An internship in Senator Paul’s Washington, D.C. office offers students the opportunity to learn firsthand about the daily operations of the Senate and its interactions with the House of Representatives and the other branches of government.  As an intern in the Washington, D.C. office, some of your responsibilities may include answering telephones, sorting constituent mail, attending hearings, giving Capitol tours, and performing legislative research.

During the summer sessions, in partnership with The Fund for American Studies, Senator Paul hosts the Summer Intern Lecture Series consisting of five lectures featuring guest speakers.

The intern selection process is highly competitive due to the limited amount of space and resources available. There are usually more qualified applicants than positions available.
