Jun 10, 2012 - StaffU.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., is seeking college students and recent graduates interested in experiencing the federal government's legislative branch firsthand to apply for fall-term internships.
Chosen applicants will spend four months in the nation's Capitol, learning the legislative process, attending briefings and committee hearings, interacting one-on-one with Wyoming constituents and providing private tours of the landmark building.
"This is a great opportunity to see the behind the scenes of how Congress works," Lummis said in a statement.
Interested candidates are encouraged to apply through Lummis's website at lummis.house.gov/ConstituentServices/Internships.htm.
Applicants will need to supply a current resume, cover letter and writing sample for consideration. All chosen applicants will receive a monthly stipend for living expenses.
The Lummis office is also willing to work with colleges for necessary credit requirements.
For more information contact Lummis's office manager, Will Carraco, at (202) 225-2311.
