Mark Udall’s regional offices throughout Colorado and in Washington, D.C., are accepting internship applications from undergraduate students and recent graduates for the summer. The internship program offers students the opportunity for public service and to learn hands-on about constituent services and the legislative process.
Interns working in the Colorado offices will assist staff as they help constituents resolve issues with federal agencies like 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 March 1 for the Washington, D.C., office and April 15 for Colorado offices. Those who are interested can apply at 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.
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.
