Congresswoman Sara Jacobs offers internships in her Washington, D.C. and San Diego, CA offices. These internships provide an opportunity for young adults to learn more about the workings of a Congressional office and the legislative process.

Internships last approximately three to four months and are intended to be educational experiences. All selected interns are compensated and will have the choice between pay of $15.50 an hour or academic credit or both. Unfortunately, international students are not permitted to be paid by the federal government.
