Congressman Dave Loebsack’s office is now accepting applications from Iowa college students to participate in a Congressional internship program in his Washington, D.C., or Iowa offices. The internship program is open to undergraduate students and recent graduates, regardless of major. 

“As a former teacher, I have seen the benefits that internships can provide by giving students a firsthand look into the government process,” Loebsack said. “I encourage all hardworking, motivated students and recent graduates to apply.”

Interns in the Washington, D.C., office will have the opportunity to learn about the legislative process and the federal government by working closely with the legislative, communications and constituent services staff members. Interns in the Iowa offices will have the opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge about how a Congressional office provides constituent services and interacts with members of the community. 

Interested candidates should email their cover letter, resume, a short writing sample and a letter of recommendation to LoebsackInternship@mail.house.gov. Applicants should indicate which location their are applying for in the subject line.
