I am pleased to offer summer and semester internship opportunities for undergraduate students who would like to learn first-hand about the workings of Capitol Hill and constituent services in my Washington and District offices. Interns will have the opportunity to learn about the legislative process, interact with constituents, develop research skills, and assist with administrative responsibilities.
Please note: APPLICATIONS FOR SUMMER 2021 ARE NOW CLOSED
, regardless of major, and consist of our Summer Internship Program and our Academic Year Internship Program Session.
Internships are open to undergraduate students
The Summer Internship Program consists of one ten-week session (June – August). Participants will work full time (40 hours per week) and receive a $6,000 stipend. The ten-week paid Summer Internship Program can accommodate a maximum of four students per session, with three students based in our Washington Office and one student based in our Durham District Office.
Preference for the Summer Internship Program will be given to rising seniors with ties to the Fourth Congressional District. Interns are required to secure their own housing and must be United States Citizens.
COVID-19 Contingency for Summer 2021:
While the Office of Congressman Price intends to offer an in-person internship experience for the Summer 2021, conditions related to COVID-19 may require us to offer a virtual-only internship. A decision about the status of the internship (in-person or virtual) will be determined when offers are extended to interns during the first week of April 2021.
The Academic Year Internship Program consists of two semester-long sessions. This program is open to undergraduate students who are attending a DC-area college or who are participating in a semester in Washington DC program sponsored by a college or university.
The Fall internship session runs from September through December and the Spring internship session runs from January through April. Fall and Spring internships are unpaid, and participants must receive academic credit to be considered. The schedule of semester interns may be flexible depending on the program.
All applicants must submit the following materials as part of their application, in addition to the application form below to be considered for a position:
