U.S. Sen. Mark Udall’s regional Colorado and Washington, D.C., offices are accepting internship applications from undergraduate students and recent graduates for the spring. The internship program offers the opportunity for public service and to learn hands-on about constituent services and the legislative process.
State interns will assist staff as they help constituents resolve issues with federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U.S. State Department and the Social Security Administration. State interns also meet with local partners and help to represent the senator at community outreach events. Interns in the Washington, D.C., office will attend committee hearings and briefings, compose memos for legislative staff, answer phones, research legislative issues, help with press outreach, lead Capitol tours and participate in congressional events.
The deadline to apply is Nov. 15 for Washington, D.C. and Nov. 30 for Colorado. Those who are interested can apply at markudall.senate.gov/students. Internships are available on either a full-time or part-time basis. The positions are unpaid, although college credit may be arranged through your school.
If you have any questions regarding the internship program, please email COInternships@markudall.senate.gov for the state program and DCInternships@markudall.senate.gov for the D.C. program.
