internships

Sen. Cruz's Internship Program offers Texas students a unique opportunity to experience first-hand the inner workings of Congress. There are two six-week sessions during the summer as well as full-semester internships in both the spring and fall.

Internships are available in our following offices:

  • Washington, D.C.
  • Austin
  • Dallas
  • Houston
  • San Antonio
  • McAllen

Due Dates:

  • Summer internships: completed packets are due the first Friday in March.
  • Fall semester internships: completed packets are due the first Friday in July.
  • Spring semester internships: completed packets are due the first Friday in November.

Priority is given to students either from Texas or students enrolled in a Texas school who have completed at least their sophomore year of college.

This is a highly competitive process. Due to the limited amount of space and resources available, there are usually more qualified applicants than positions available.

Internships are unpaid, however, it is possible to receive internship course credit pending approval by the respective college or university.
