Home » constituent-servicesInternships

My office is pleased to offer internships to eligible undergraduate, graduate or post-graduate students to further a student's educational and professional goals. The internships are unpaid, but I will be glad to help you if you are requesting credit for your internship through your school or university. Both part-time and full-time internships are available in our Washington, DC and District offices.

Overview & Duties

This internship offers a unique perspective on the inner workings of Congress and a Congressional Member’s Office. You will see firsthand how representative government operates to address the concerns of its constituents. Most importantly, you will play a vital role in supporting Congressman Alan Lowenthal and his staff achieve the highest standard of constituent services and legislative initiatives. Duties include attending legislative hearings and community meetings, writing briefs, conducting legislative research, drafting correspondence, and performing administrative tasks such as mail processing, data entry, answering telephones, and assisting staff when needed.

Application Process

Interns are accepted throughout the year and applications welcomed on a rolling basis. Please keep in mind, however, that summer is a popular season for internships, and space constraints limit the number of interns who may work in our offices at one time. Preference will be given to those residing in the 47th District of California. If you have any further questions please contact the office in which you wish to apply.
