Student Internships

Congressman Moulton offers internships throughout the fall, spring, and summer semesters in both his Washington, D.C., and Salem, Massachusetts, offices. Internships are intended for current undergraduate students, recent college graduates, and students currently enrolled in graduate school. In some circumstances, we have had high school students intern at the Salem office contingent upon their scheduling availability, and we highly encourage them to apply. These internships are a great opportunity for interested students to gain hands-on experience in the legislative process. Internships can be full- or part-time, and start and end dates are flexible.

Intern responsibilities:

  • Answering constituent phone calls and greeting constituents at the front desk
  • Taking notes at briefings and hearings on various topics
  • Categorizing and responding to constituent mail
  • Conducting tours of the Capitol for constituents
  • Drafting form letters and cosponsor requests for the Congressman
  • Assembling press and news clips
  • Performing a variety of other duties as assigned, such as conducting legislative research

These internships are a great opportunity for interested students to gain hands-on experience in the legislative process. To apply, please fill out the form below and attach a cover letter and resume. A staff member will be in touch after the deadline has passed only if you were selected for an interview.

Included below are quotes from a few of our past interns about their experience in our office.

My internship was both successful and challenging in that everyday I had the opportunity to learn something new, help constituents in need, and contribute to the success of Team Moulton.” -Will S., Spring 2016

The people who work here are excellent and really do want to help the community and make everyone feel included. Therefore, I feel that the people I have worked with have really made the internship for me.” – Tayla B., Spring 2016

Communication has been really one of the highlights of this internship. The open office setting allows you to interact regularly with caseworkers and other higher ups in the office. I feel like I have learned a lot about government simply from watching my coworkers.” – Eduardo C., Spring 2016

Applications are reviewed and interviews occur on a rolling basis.

The Spring 2020 internship application for Washington, D.C. is now closed. We are still accepting applications for the Fern Holland Fellowship and Massachusetts-based student interns.

In addition to hiring a class of three to five interns, we offer a full-time, paid foreign policy fellowship for the Spring semester (January through May). This opportunity is financial need based and is only open to candidates who are Pell-grant eligible. The fellowship is in our Washington office and is intended for current undergraduate students, recent college graduates, and students currently enrolled in graduate school.

Foreign policy fellow responsibilities, in addition to the regular intern responsibilities, specific to foreign policy and national security matters: 

  • Conducting legislative research
  • Taking notes at briefings and hearings
  • Organizing research from Members of Congress and outside organizations
  • Writing briefings for the Congressman
  • Drafting questions for House Armed Services Committee hearings

To apply, please fill out the same form below and attach a cover letter and resume. Applications are accepted through November 30. The full fellowship description can be found here. If selected, you will be required to submit a FAFSA form. Feel free to call our office with any questions you may have at 202-225-8020.
