U.S. Representative Jared Polis


Congressman Polis' office is always accepting resumes from anyone interested in interning for academic credit.

All internships are unpaid and candidates who are chosen for the Washington, D.C. office are responsible for paying their travel and living expenses. However, interns in any office can arrange to receive academic credit for their work.
