“Working in my office, interns gain a front row seat to the daily operation of the Senate, actively participating in the legislative process,” said Enzi, “While working in our nation’s capital, participants will also have access to all the great opportunities that Washington, D.C., has to offer,  from unique cultural events to meeting some remarkable people.”

Typical intern duties include giving Wyoming constituents Capitol tours and conducting research for legislative aides, in addition to administrative and clerical tasks. Interns also have the opportunity to attend committee hearings and lectures and observe floor proceedings.

Senator Enzi provides a monthly stipend of $1,600 for his interns and many colleges typically offer school credit for internship programs. Senator Enzi encourages candidates to look into specific programs provided by their schools and take full advantage of their time in his office.

The summer internship for 2015 runs from June 1st – August 14th. Priority is given to students and graduates from Wyoming, or those studying in Wyoming, who have achieved at least a sophomore status at an accredited university or college.
