Internships

Internships are available in Congressman Welch's Burlington and Washington offices. Internships are offered during the summer and throughout the fall and spring semesters. They are for college students and recent graduates only. Although internships in both offices are unpaid, students gain valuable work experience and college credit.

Interns' responsibilities will vary. They will be asked to answer phones, run errands, research legislation for Congressman Welch 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.

To apply for an internship, please complete the application form below and submit it with the following:

  • cover letter
  • résumé
  • college transcript
  • two letters of recommendation
  • a one-two page writing sample

Applications:

All internship applications should be emailed to welchinterns@mail.house.gov with “Vermont Internship” in the subject line for those seeking an internship in Rep. Welch’s Vermont office, and “DC Internship” in the subject line for those seeking an internship in Rep. Welch’s DC Office.
