We the People Congressional Intern Scholarship. This is a new scholarship program to enable Oregonians who could otherwise not afford to participate in a congressional internship to gain experience in U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley’s Washington D.C. and Portland offices. The scholarship is open to all individuals seeking financial support while interning on a full- or part-time basis. Scholarships are available for full-time or part-time internships in Washington D.C., or a part-time internship in Portland. Scholarship positions last between 10 and 14 weeks during the fall, winter, spring, and summer terms. Recipients of the ‘We the People’ Congressional Intern Scholarship will be a part of the traditional intern cohort, and receive the same internship experience as non-scholarship interns. In Merkley’s offices, interns are integrated as part of the team, and staff invest in facilitating interns’ professional development. More information on internships with Merkley’s office can be found at https://www.merkley.senate.gov/services/students/internships.
