Paid Fall Congressional Internships List

 

For many students trying to find an internship is stressful. Not do they only have to worry about where they'll be interning but also how they will survive while working for free. Thankfully, Pay Our Interns has compiled a list of Congressional Offices that are still looking for interns for the fall and the best part is they pay! Whether you're a democrat, Republican or Independent, we've got you covered.

 
 

Our Campaign

 

Pay Our Interns is bipartisan, non-profit organization that advocates for an increase in the amount of paid internships within our government, for-profit, and nonprofit sector. POI serves as a research platform, advocacy guide, and internship database for students across the country. Paid internships should be available to all students in every sector, whether private or public. A student’s socioeconomic status should not be a barrier to getting real-world work experience.

Our Solution

 

It is imperative that we fund more paid internships, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes sense from a financial standpoint. According to a survey done by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, students with paid internships receive higher salaries than students with unpaid internships. With their higher salaries, those students can then contribute more to society, returning the initial investment made in their experiential education. If we want to have a competitive workforce in the coming decades, we need to invest in more paid internships for millennials.
