Thank you for your interest in the John Linder Congressional Internship Program. It is always exciting for me to learn of so many college students eager to participate in American politics. As you may know, I am retiring at the end of the current Congress, and as such, I am no longer accepting internship applications.
That said, while classroom learning is invaluable, there is simply no substitute for hands-on experience, where you not only study the material, but you actually take part in the process. Things often operate differently in reality than they do in theory--especially when it comes to politics. If you have ever wondered how Congress really works and what happens behind the newspaper headlines, I would encourage you to look for other congressional internship opportunities.
