Summer Internships

The office of United States Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina announced this week there still accepting applications for people interested in congressional internships. The announcement indicates there are positions available in the Senator’s Columbia office for this summer.

The internship program offers undergraduate and graduate students practical experience in constituent services, the legislative process, government policy, and press. The internship provides students with the ability to work with and learn from public service professionals. All internships are unpaid, but students will learn invaluable work experience and skills throughout their internship that will help them gain a better understanding of how their government functions.

In the Columbia office, interns will take an active role in the community, working on state-based projects of importance, while also answering phones, completing research and other projects, and being an integral part of day-to-day office operations. State office interns have the ability to assist with issues that are personally affecting our citizens.

Internship hours are flexible to accommodate students’ course schedules, but can generally run 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Interested South Carolina students can apply through the Senator’s website at  https://www.scott.senate.gov/constituent-services/internships.

Any additional questions can be directed to the internship coordinator.
