U.S. Senator Tina Smith - Internship now paid Deadline March 15th, 2019I’m excited to let you know that our internship program is now paid. In the St. Paul office, students will receive a $1,200 stipend that is spread out throughout the duration of the internship session. In the D.C. office, students will receive a $1,800 stipend – the pay is higher due to cost of living. They are paid twice per month – on the 5th and 20th – if those days fall on a holiday or weekend, they will be paid the business day prior. This is a victory for low-income students–like I was–who are unable to pursue unpaid internships due to the financial burden of having to work for free. I’ve attached an updated PDF of our program. Students are welcome to contact me if they have any questions. However, they should use the firstname.lastname@example.org email address – it’s easier for me to respond to internship questions through that email address, otherwise their email may get lost in the shuffle of all the other emails I receive daily. The deadline to apply for our summer session is March 15 – if you could help get the word out to students, I would really appreciate it. If your university is on handshake, the internship position is already posted there. I hope some of your students apply!
