WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley said today that fall internships for college-age Iowans are available and applications are due July 15.

These Senate internships are available in Grassley offices in Washington, D.C., Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs, Davenport, Des Moines, Sioux City, and Waterloo. The fall session is set to start August 26.

Interns assist staff members with administrative, legislative and communications work, including that of Grassley’s staff on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, where he serves as Ranking Member. An internship during the fall semester allows for a wide range of exposure for students on Capitol Hill. A firsthand account of a Grassley internship can be seen here.

Grassley said he encourages young Iowans who are interested in learning more about the government to apply. “Working in a congressional office is a good way for college students and new graduates to learn more about the legislative branch of the federal government while gaining valuable work experience. Internships in my offices are available to students in all areas of study,” he said.

Application forms are available on Grassley’s Senate website and in Grassley’s offices in Iowa. Due to security-related delays in postal mail delivery to U.S. Senate office buildings, internship applications should be emailed to or faxed to 202-224-5136. For additional information, send messages to or call 202-224-3744.
