Rep. Grijalva Accepting Applications for Fall Internships through August 8
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Raúl M. Grijalva is accepting applications for Fall 2014 internships in Washington, D.C. and his various Southern Arizona district offices through August 8.
Applicants from the University of Arizona have the opportunity to apply for a Federal Relations DC Intern Scholarship. The scholarship offers $500 per month for living expenses and a tuition award. For further information or to apply, please contact the University of Arizona Office of Federal Relations at (520) 621-3108 or Shanley@email.arizona.edu.
Interns in the Washington office work closely with legislative and media staff, answer office phones, distribute mail, and communicate with constituents. Preference is given to students and individuals from Arizona’s 3rd Congressional District, although all qualified applicants are carefully considered. Interns other than the scholarship recipient are unpaid and are responsible for lodging and transportation.
Anyone interested in working in the Washington, D.C. office should submit a cover letter, resume, and a one-page writing sample to Cristina Villa, Rep. Grijalva’s internship coordinator, at Cristina.Villa@mail.house.gov.
Interns at the Tucson, Somerton, and Avondale offices help staff provide constituent services to residents of the Third Congressional District. Interns also perform administrative tasks and may be asked to work on special projects for public outreach, events and other needs of the office. Internships for the Tucson, Somerton, and Avondale offices are available at the beginning of each semester. There is no hard deadline, but earlier applications may be given priority.
