My office offers three Congressional Intern sessions each year in Washington, DC and four field offices in Wyoming.

Applicants also interested in an internship with the Senate Republican Conference should apply through the online form below.

The program provides Wyoming 's youth with a unique opportunity to view first hand how our government operates. The history of Congressional Internships runs deep on Capitol Hill, and the program is an integral part of my Senate office. Young people from throughout Wyoming apply each year so that they may have the unique experience of witnessing our world’s greatest democracy in action.

I have an internship program in my Wyoming field offices that gives more young people in Wyoming an opportunity to work for the Federal Government while remaining in our great state. This program enables interns to experience a critical part of a United States Senator’s work: constituent outreach and service. Part-time internships are also available in order to accommodate the students’ class schedule if necessary.

The internship program in my offices consists of two four-month sessions in the Spring and Fall, and one three month session in the Summer.

In both Wyoming and D.C., interns will participate in a wide array of activities ranging from constituent relations to legislative research. In addition, interns are encouraged to enjoy the many other activities and events the area has to offer.

Applicants are generally college students, 19 years of age and older, from the State of Wyoming. Each intern is given a monthly stipend to help with living expenses.

Applicants for my D.C. office are generally looking for full-time internships.

Due to the delayed screening process of mail coming into Congressional office buildings, all persons interested in applying should use the online intern application.

If you have any questions, please contact Nikki Farha in my Washington, DC office at or (202) 224-6441.
