In my Washington, D.C. office, internships run throughout the fall, spring or summer semesters for college students. Although all internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience. The hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. when Congress is in session, and 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. when not in session.

In Washington, interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend hearings and briefings and answer constituent letters on various issues before the House. As a result, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a congressional office.

Please contact Natalie Angelo in our office if you are interested in applying.

Congressional Page Program

Eligibilty and Application Requirements

Currently, 66 young men and women are appointed by their Members of Congress to serve as pages in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Democratic Members appoint 12 of these high school juniors.

To be eligible to serve as a page, all applicants must be at least 16 years of age at the time their appointment begins and have a cumulative grade point average of "B" (3.0 or 85/100) or better in all major courses to date.

Additionally, summer program applicants may only serve as a page during the summer before or the summer after their junior year of high school. School-year program applicants may only serve for their junior year of high school.

An official transcript of all grades (from 9th grade through at least the first semester of the current year) is required to verify the cumulative grade point average of "B" or better in major courses. Only the grades in the following subject areas will be counted: English, science, mathematics, social studies, and foreign language—electives are not included.

Applicants for both summer and the school-year page program, must submit a completed page application to their Member of Congress prior to the April 3rd deadline.
