Internship Opportunities

Interns with Congressman Schrader's office gain valuable experience and first-hand understanding of how our legislative process works. Congressman Schrader's office offers internships in both Washington D.C. and Oregon. 
Interns in our Washington DC office will attend hearings and Congressional briefings, draft constituent correspondence, prepare memoranda and conduct research on a variety of issues for the Congressman. Interns in our Oregon office will assist district staff with casework and outreach as well as performing many of the the research responsibilities conducted in Washington DC. Interns in both offices assist with answering phones, data entry and general office systems operations. Interns are an important part of our Congressional staff. 
Internships are available expressly for the purpose of furthering educational objectives, therefore they are unpaid and usually awarded to graduate and college-level students. 

Application Process

There is no application deadline. Interns are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year on both a full and part-time basis. Priority is given to applicants from Oregon's 5th district, although all interested persons are encouraged to apply. Please submit a cover letter, resume and a brief writing sample to either the DC or Oregon office.
