My office offers three Congressional Intern sessions each year in Washington, DC and four field offices in Wyoming. The Spring and Fall session both last four months each while the Summer session lasts three months.

Applicants also interested in an internship with the Senate Republican Conference or the Energy and Natural Resources Committee should apply through the online form below.

The Washington, D.C. internship program provides Wyoming's youth with a unique opportunity to view firsthand 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.

The internship program in my Wyoming field offices that give 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.

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.

The internship program is generally catered to 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.

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