For these opportunities, CRS partners with a network of colleges and universities along with other organizations to offer paid internships. The Student Diversity and Inclusion Internship Program (SDIIP) is an experiential learning program designed to: 1) introduce a diverse and inclusive group of undergraduate and graduate students to career opportunities with the Congressional Research Service; 2) provide an opportunity for students to learn more about advanced studies as a means to fulfill their long-term career objectives; and 3) to position CRS as a future employer of choice.
Interning for CRS
Students can find outstanding opportunities to apply their academic and professional experience in a CRS internship. CRS needs individuals from a broad range of subjects and disciplines including law, economics, foreign affairs, the physical and behavioral sciences, environmental science, public administration, the social sciences, library and information science, information technology and finance.
The infrastructure Offices oversee CRS's long-term goals and provide management and administrative support to Divisions. Interns working in the infrastructure Offices may work on information management support and technology; communications; graphics and publishing; and facilities management among other tasks. Students can earn hands on experience in their fields of study.
CRS interns working in one of the Divisions will assist in performing research in response to congressional inquiries regarding public policy. Interns help provide support to Members of Congress and staff throughout the legislative process and thereby develop their research skills. The nature and scope of each internship project will vary by subject area.
CRS staff are nationally recognized analysts and information specialists, and students have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the Congress and the legislative process.
