If you are interested in a summer internship in my Washington, D.C. office, please call my Honolulu office for an application.  The application and requested documents must be received in my Honolulu office by March 15.

Description of Intern Program:

Who can be considered?

Anyone can apply for an internship. However, preference is given to Hawaii residents who have completed their junior year in college.

What does an intern do?

An intern's duties depend on a number of variables: his or her special interests and skills, as well as current office needs. Every effort is made to ensure that each intern learns something about each part of the office. Although an intern will do some legislative work, he or she must also be prepared to assist in the support areas, such as filing, conducting tours of the Capitol for Hawaii visitors, deliveries, etc.

Does an intern earn academic credit?

Senator Akaka cannot provide academic credit, but credit can usually be arranged through a student's own college.

Does an intern receive any income?

Senator Akaka tries to provide a small stipend for each intern, but this will not cover all of an intern's living expenses.

Is housing provided?

Senator Akaka is unable to provide housing, but will provide interns with information on housing facilities in the area.
