“I’m thrilled to announce that our 2024 summer internship application is now live!” Sewell said. “As a former congressional intern myself, I know firsthand the power that such experiences hold to cultivate the leaders and changemakers of tomorrow. I encourage college students and recent graduates with an interest in government and public service to spend the semester learning with me and my team!”

Candidates should be proactive, professional, dependable, and have an interest in federal policy and the legislative process.
