Each summer, Sen. Murkowski hosts an Alaskan high school intern program, giving newly graduated high school students an opportunity to spend a month in her Washington, D.C. office to learn more about the workings of the United States Senate and the federal legislation that affects Alaska. A total of twenty high school students from all areas of Alaska will be selected to participate in two month-long sessions.
The office also selects two college students to oversee the high school program and coordinate various planned events, as well as to supervise and provide peer support for the interns. The internship is designed to be a great learning experience as well as a chance for Alaska’s youth to enjoy all that Washington, D.C. has to offer.
Applications are available online on the internship page and must be submitted by March 9. For more information or questions regarding the internship program, please contact Matthew Shuckerow, in the Washington, D.C. office at 202-224-6665.
