Senator Nelson offers internships in his Florida and Washington D.C. offices to students from Florida. These unpaid positions can last several weeks or months during the summer or more extended periods during the school year.
In addition to administrative and receptionist duties, interns in state offices work closely with staff to address constituent concerns and facilitate special events, such as town hall meetings. In the Orlando office, interns also contact federal agencies on behalf of constituents and assist caseworkers.
Applications from students attending college, vocational or alternative learning institutions are accepted. High school juniors and seniors may apply for school internships or community service credits. Applications are accepted throughout the year.
