Due to the current impact of COVID-19, Senator Warner will offer a summer 2021 internship program that will be entirely remote.  In order to be considered, all interested students must complete the online application by the deadlines listed below.

Senator Warner values the engagement of individuals who are passionate about public policy and serving the constituents of the Commonwealth, and is excited to offer this alternative program.  Preference will be given to candidates who have completed their first year of college and who reside in Virginia or attend college in-state. To be eligible for an internship, an individual must have graduated from high school.

Senator Warner serves Virginia in a variety of ways, including by developing public policy, providing direct assistance to individuals and local communities, and listening to the different needs of the diverse communities across the Commonwealth.  You will have an opportunity to learn by both observing and contributing to staff efforts.  Intern duties might include: processing constituent phone calls, sorting constituent mail, drafting policy or hearing summaries, conducting research for legislative aides, attending committee hearings and lectures virtually, and/or assisting state staff with constituent service and community outreach efforts.

All interns* are eligible for a stipend, as follows:

  • for a $800 pre-tax stipend, you must be able to commit to working a 40 hour week for a 6-week session in the DC office
  • for a $800 pre-tax stipend, you must be able to commit to working a minimum of 25 hours each week for the 10-week session in a state office

*In order to receive compensation by the United States Senate, interns must be authorized to work in the United States, and, pursuant to federal law, be a U.S. citizen or meet one of three limited exceptions.  If you have questions about this, please email us at intern_request@warner.senate.gov.
