WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Sen. Rob Portman announced Thursday he is accepting applications for summer 2020 internship opportunities in his Washington, D.C. and state offices.

“I began my career in public service as a congressional intern and know firsthand the benefits of offering college students an exciting introduction to Congress and the workings of a Senate office,” said Portman, an Ohio Republican from Cincinnati.

“I look forward to welcoming these students who will earn valuable experience as they assist me and my staff in our work to make a difference for Ohio," Portman said.

Internships are designed primarily for Ohio students who have completed at least one full year of collegiate undergraduate coursework.

Interns are assigned to work alongside staff responsible for the Senator’s legislative, press, and administrative operations.

Students who wish to apply for a summer internship may find application information on Senator Portman’s website in the section titled “Students”.

 The deadline for applications for summer internships is Jan. 20, 2020.
