CHARLESTON, SC -

Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) is now accepting applications from South Carolinians interested in serving as interns in his Upstate, Midlands, Lowcountry, and Washington, D.C. offices for the spring and summer terms. 

Charleston-Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) is now accepting applications from South Carolinians interested in serving as interns in his Upstate, Midlands, Lowcountry, and Washington, D.C. offices for the spring and summer terms.

Senator Scott's internships are designed to provide 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.

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.

In Washington, interns' responsibilities will be more varied. They will be asked to answer phones, research legislation for the Member and legislative staff, attend Congressional hearings and briefings and answer constituent letters on various issues.

Through their duties, interns learn about the legislative process and the many other functions of a Congressional office. Although internships in all offices are unpaid, students gain invaluable work experience and will have the opportunity to work with professionals in both legislative and constituent services roles. Internship hours are flexible to accommodate students' hectic course schedules, but generally run 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

Anyone interested in completing an internship with Senator Scott's office should contact the internship coordinator at internships@scott.senate.gov or (202) 224-6121.
