U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy of Winter Park, Fla., is currently accepting applications for her academic enhancement internship program during the fall 2018 semester.  This highly selective internship program is specifically designed to allow students to learn about the legislative process firsthand and gain valuable insight into how our government works.  The program helps provide students a more well-rounded education by providing opportunities that are typically not available in the classroom.  Academic enhancement internships in Murphy’s office are strictly reserved for currently-enrolled college students and recent graduates.  Prospective students may apply for internships in Murphy’s Washington D.C., Orlando, or Sanford offices. 

“As someone who worked in the private sector and as a college instructor, I know how these unique, hands-on experiences can enhance students’ education and better prepare them to enter the workforce,” Murphy said.  “Congressionalinternships afford students the opportunity to learn about the legislative process and casework services, network with policy makers and community leaders, hone their skills and talents, and help our team make a difference in the lives of central Florida families.  Ourinternships provide a well-rounded educational experience,and I encourage all eligible students from my district to apply.”

Internships are unpaid and are designed to enhance students’ academic experience.  As such, students who successfully complete the internship may receive academic credit through coordination with their college or university.  Eligible applicants must be 18 years of age or older, a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident, a high school graduate who is currently enrolled in or recently graduated from a college or university, and available to work at least 30 hours a week for full-time and at least 15 hours a week for part-time internships.  For internships in Washington, interns will be expected to cover the cost of travel to and from Washington, secure their own lodging while in Washington, and pay for their own meals and expenses.

For more information, interested students should visit Murphy.house.gov or call 1-888-205-5421.
