Rhode Island students interning in my office have the opportunity to learn about the legislative process and see firsthand the federal government at work.

Candidates should complete the online application via the links below.  Due to the large number of applications received, we are unable to offer an internship to everyone who applies.  Preference will be given to Rhode Islanders.

Summer 2024 Session

Applications for the Fall 2024 internship sessions are now open for both Rhode Island and Washington, DC. 

We will stop accepting applications for the Fall 2024 internship session July 15th. 

Rhode Island Internships

Internships in the Cranston or Providence offices allow students to see how Senator Reed's work helps Rhode Islanders throughout the state.  Interns assist in research initiatives, as well as special projects and events.  They also perform various administrative tasks, such as greeting guests, drafting correspondence, and sorting mail.

Part-time paid internships in Rhode Island are available for fall, spring, and summer sessions.  Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate degree program.  For more information about interning in the Rhode Island offices, please call (401) 528-5200.

Washington Internships

Interns in the Washington office will research legislative issues, attend briefings and committee hearings, answer constituent inquiries, conduct tours of the Capitol, and provide administrative, legislative, and press support to Senator Reed and his staff.

Full-time and part-time paid internships are available in the Washington office for fall, spring, early summer, and late summer sessions.  Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program.  For more information about interning in the Washington office, please call (202) 224-4642.


Step 1

Complete the online application questionnaire for the office in which you would like to work.  You may save a questionnaire in progress, but please be sure to click the submit button when it is complete.  Incomplete applications will not be considered.  If you would like to apply to both the Rhode Island and Washington programs, please complete both applications.

Step 2

Send accompanying materials, such as your cover letter and resume, to the office(s) to which you are applying.  These documents may be submitted from the Checklist page within the online application. 

Step 3

Ask a professor, employer, or someone else who knows your work to write a recommendation and send it to Senator Reed via email, mail, or fax.  Alternatively, you may submit the recommendation yourself from the Checklist page in the online application.
