2022 Summer Congressional Internship Program
INTERN IN CONGRESS
College to Congress creates pathways for students to intern in Congress who otherwise could not afford to do so. By empowering the next generation of passionate young leaders (you!) to kick-start their careers in public service, we get one step closer to creating a Congress that is truly reflective of America. Your journey to a career in public service starts here.
College to Congress wants to help you land your dream internship in Congress and give you the means to make it happen.
• Be a current junior or senior in college (at the time of applying) or be a recent graduate or graduate student
• Commit to living and working in Washington, DC from Monday, May 30, 2022 to Monday, July 30, 2022
• Commit to training and participating in College to Congress Programming while interning in Congress full-time
• Be a Pell Grant recipient, have DACA status, or receive financial aid as a student with disabilities
All members of our cohort must complete "Getting a Congressional Internship 101" coursework on College to Congress University (C2C-U), which can be found on our website. This is a great FREE online program to help you create a Hill-ready resume, leverage your LinkedIn network, and more. Upon completion, all C2C-U alumni have access to our mentorship portal, job board, and LinkedIn group--all of which are designed to help you land a Congressional internship.
If you haven't yet completed C2C-U yet, don't worry! The deadline for completion of our 101 course, if you would like to be a part of our 2022 Summer Cohort, is Thursday, February 17th, 2022. We will be requiring proof of completion before offering acceptance, so get started today!
