“I encourage students who have an interest in civics to apply for the positions in both of my offices,” said McNerney. “This is a great way to learn more about the government and give back to our community.”
College and post-graduate students are encouraged to apply, and high school seniors will be considered on a case-by-case basis. All internships are unpaid and designed to provide the student with educational and professional experience. The Congressman’s office will partner with institutions that offer academic credit for internships.
