Mark Udall’s Pikes Peak regional office in Colorado Springs is accepting internship applications from undergraduate students and recent graduates for his office in Colorado Springs for the fall and winter semesters. The internship program offers students the opportunity for public service and to learn hands-on about constituent services and the legislative process.
Interns will assist state staff as they help constituents resolve issues with federal agencies like the Department of Veterans Affairs, meet with local partners, represent the senator at community-outreach events, and draft writing projects such as letters of support for grant applications and congressional inquiries to federal agencies.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis; interested students can apply at http://markudall.senate.gov/students. Internships are available on either a full-time or part-time basis. This is an unpaid position, although college credit may be arranged through your school.
