On Tuesday afternoon, Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy announced that her office will begin accepting applications for her 2017 congressional summer internship program, which will allow college students to learn about the legislative process while working in Murphy’s Washington D.C., Orlando, or Sanford offices.
“There are so many talented students in central Florida, and I want to give them the opportunity to be part of our legislative process,” said Murphy. “I know very well form my time in the private sector and as a college instructor that this kind of hands-on experience is incredibly valuable to young people. Congressional internships give students the opportunity to showcase their skills and talents, learn more about our system of government, and help serve the people of central Florida.”
Murphy’s district includes the University of Central Florida, Rollins College, Seminole State College and branches of Valencia State College. Internships are for college credit only and available to applicants who are 18 years of age or older, a U.S. citizen, a high school graduate who is presently attending or enrolled in a college or university, and available to work at least 30 hours a week. D.C interns will be expected to cover their own expenses.
The two summer sessions begin on May 30 and July 5, and the application deadline is Friday, March 31. Those interested can find out more HERE.
