The Finance Committee accepts a limited number of internship, fellowship and law clerkship applications throughout the year. Interns, fellows and law clerks routinely assist with legislative research projects, hearings, and other substantive assignments and administrative tasks. Successful applicants serve during spring (January-May), summer (May/June-August) and fall (September-December). Although neither a salary nor expenses can be paid, often graduate students are able to receive credit for participating in the program. Interns, fellows, and law clerks will apply for and be placed with one of our policy teams: Health, Tax, Trade, and Oversight/Investigations.
Diverse candidates are encouraged to apply. The Office is an equal employment opportunity employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, age, uniformed service, genetic information, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. When applications open, postings will be listed on the Senate Employment Bulletin and the Senate Internships Bulletin. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Should additional questions arise, please contact the Committee at (202) 224-4515.
The Finance Committee accepts a limited number of internship and clerkship applications throughout the year. Spring and fall semester internships last approximately four months. Two summer sessions of six weeks each are also available. Law school students serve as law clerks during the same periods.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, our unpaid internship and law clerkship programs have been suspended indefinitely until our staff returns to work in the Senate office buildings. This page will be updated when the internship program is reopened. Should additional questions arise, please contact the Committee at (202) 224-4515.
