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 9:00 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.

Interested students should complete and return the following for consideration:
  • Cover letter
  • Intern application form (found here)
  • Resume
Those wishing to intern in the Washington, D.C., office should complete the online application and fax (202-226-9870), email the documents to, or mail the other requested documents to:
Intern Coordinator
Office of Representative Marlin Stutzman
2418 Rayburn HOB
Washington, D.C. 20515
The application process is fluid, please complete the application at your convenience and our office will contact you. Due to security procedures, mail sent to congressional offices can be delayed 2 to 3 weeks. Please mail your completed intern application package early to allow for mail security delays.



In my Indiana office, interns may be asked to do a variety of things, including day-to-day office work such as answering phones, writing letters and assisting with media clips. In addition, interns may be assigned to assist in various constituent case work or work on District-based projects of importance.
