Internship Available with Congressman Keith Ellison

Congressman Keith Ellison is looking for the next group of smart, hardworking, and dedicated students for a Winter 2015 internship opportunity in his Minneapolis office.

Internships are offered for individuals interested in learning the operations of a Congressional office: current events as they relate to Congressional activity, federal legislation and legislative issues, constituent services, and events research and planning. Interns must work at least 15 hours per week. Unfortunately, due to House ethics guidelines, we are not able to offer compensation to interns.

People of color, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ individuals, and those from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Though this internship demands high-quality work and investment, we are seeking applicants who are passionate about social justice and in need of experience. Applications are due by December 12, 2014, and may be emailed to nicky.leingang@mail.house.gov.If you have any questions, please contact :
