Senator Tim Scott Accepting Internship Applications for Spring 2016

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) is now accepting applications for congressional internships in his Washington, DC, Upstate, Midlands and Lowcountry offices for the spring 2016 term.

Senator Scott’s internships are designed to be an educational opportunity, primarily for college juniors and seniors, to individuals who would like to learn first-hand more about our government, and to be part of a fast-paced Senate office.Although internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience and an opportunity to work with professionals in legislative, constituent services and press roles.

In Washington, interns’ responsibilities vary and include answering phones, researching legislation, attending Congressional hearings and briefings, assisting with press tasks and assisting with constituent letters on issues.

In the Upstate, Midlands, and Lowcountry offices, 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 functioning.

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 should contact the internship coordinator at or (202) 224-6121.
