STATEHOUSE – State Reps. Ethan Manning (R-Logansport) and Heath VanNatter (R-Kokomo) are seeking interns to join them at the Statehouse during the 2024 legislative session.

According to Manning House interns will be paid $900 bi-weekly as they work in downtown Indianapolis during session, which starts in January and concludes mid-March.

“Our program is a great opportunity to build professional skills, network with state leaders and get paid,” Manning said. “With many colleges kicking off a new school year, it’s never too early to secure a spring internship.”

VanNatter said House internships are open to college students and recent graduates of all majors.

“As a small-business owner, I know employers value and look for candidates with on-the-job experience,” VanNatter said. “This internship sets applicants apart from their peers and can lead to full-time jobs.”

Paid, spring-semester intern positions are full time, Monday through Friday, and include free parking, career and professional development assistance, enrollment access to an Indiana government class, and opportunities to earn academic credits through the student’s college or university. Interns are also eligible to apply for a competitive $3,000 scholarship to use toward undergraduate and graduate expenses.

Students can apply for internships in a variety of departments related to their field of study, including legislative operations, policy, and communications and media relations.  

Applications are available online at and are due by Oct. 31.
