I am proud to offer internship opportunities to college students who have completed at least their undergradute freshman year. Priority will be given to upperclassmen and students who are from Alabama's Second Congressional District. This internship program is a competitive experience designed for students who are interested in learning about our nation's legislative process and the day-to-day operations of a congressional office. Due to space limitations, please understand that only a small number of applicants will be accepted.
Note: My office is no longer accepting internship applications for the summer of 2017.
