Senator Romney offers internships for college students. The purpose of the program is to give interns firsthand knowledge of the way in which a Senate office operates on a daily basis, to observe the legislative process at the federal level, and to develop research skills related to public policy.

- Fall 2020 ( September 15 - December 18)
