State Sen. Randy Head (R-Logansport) announced the Indiana Senate Republicans are offering paid internship opportunities in the Senate’s legislative, legal, policy, communications and information technology offices during the 2016 session of the General Assembly.

Qualified candidates must be college students, recent graduates, or enrolled in graduate or law school. Positions are open to Indiana residents or non-residents who attend a college or university located within the state.

Benefits include a $700 bi-weekly stipend, scholarship opportunities, earned academic credits, resume building, community involvement and networking while working along with more than 40 fellow interns at the Indiana Statehouse located in downtown Indianapolis.

These are partisan, full-time positions that begin with a mandatory orientation in late December and conclude at the end of the legislative session in March 2016.

“These internships offer a very unique professional development opportunity,” Head said. “Our interns receive hands-on, practical experience in the General Assembly. By being involved in the legislative process, they are able to sharpen their time-management, communication and problem-solving skills, all of which are valuable to employers.”

Head said more information and applications for full-time, spring internships can be found online at

The deadline to apply is Oct. 31.
