WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Tom Udall invites New Mexico college students interested in gaining legislative or press relations experience to apply for summer internships in his Washington, D.C., office.

During the upcoming summer internship program, Udall’s office in Washington, D.C., will host two summer sessions: May 26 – June 26 and June 29 – July 31. There is limited availability for full summer internship placements from May 26 – July 31. Applications and letters of recommendation for either summer internship session must be submitted by April 5.
“Congressional internships offer a unique opportunity for students to learn about the inner workings of our government, and to experience firsthand how a Senate office operates,” Udall said. “The perspective gained through observing House and Senate gallery proceedings, listening to high-profile officials during the summer speaker series and assisting with my office’s daily operations can provide a valuable perspective to anyone interested in pursuing a career in government or public service. Interns play an integral role in my office, and I encourage interested college students to apply.”
Students of all majors are encouraged to apply and internships may count toward college credit. Students should check with their respective college or university for requirements.
