Udall Recruiting Summer Session Interns for Washington Office

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tom Udall invites New Mexico college students interested in gaining legislative or press relations experience to apply for summer internships in his Washington, D.C., office.

For more information and to apply for an internship, please visit During the upcoming summer internship program, Udall's office in Washington, D.C., will host two summer internship sessions: May 29 – June 29, and July 2 to Aug. 3. There may also be limited availability for students who prefer an internship for the full summer. Applications and letters of recommendation for either summer internship session must be submitted by March 18, 2018.

"Internships on Capitol Hill offer students a unique opportunity to experience firsthand the inner workings of our government and the day-to-day operations of a Senate office,” Udall said. “During these internships, students will have the chance to assist in every aspect of my office functions. They are able to attend committee hearings and House and Senate floor proceedings, learn how to write a press release, research legislation and draft correspondence. For young people interested in a career in public service or government, interning on Capitol Hill is an invaluable educational experience. Interns are critical to the daily operations of my office, and I encourage all interested college students to apply."

Students of all majors are accepted; internships may count toward college credit. Students should check with their respective college or university for requirements.
