Successful intern and law clerk applicants serve during spring (January-May), summer (May/June-August) and fall (September-December). These positions are unpaid.

The Committee seeks individuals with specific interests in health care, international trade, Social Security, human services, tax issues, and the press. Interns and law clerks routinely assist with legislative research projects, hearings, and other substantive assignments and administrative tasks. Though no specific major or program is required, a good academic record is a must.

A limited number of interns and law clerks are selected for each term on a rolling basis; applicants should apply early (3-4 months before the start date is preferable). Given that Senator Wyden is from Oregon, current and former Oregon residents are especially encouraged to apply. 

Applicants should e-mail a cover letter, resume, 1-2 page writing sample, and two references to the following address: Democratic_Internships@finance.senate.gov. In the cover letter, please indicate your area of interest given the Finance Committee’s broad jurisdiction. Should additional questions arise, please contact the Committee at (202) 224-4515.
