Stennis Program for Congressional Interns

Program Description

The Stennis Program for Congressional Interns is a competitive, bipartisan, bicameral program designed to provide congressional interns with a unique opportunity to better understand Congress as an institution, as well as the role it plays in our democracy.

Participants connect with current and former senior congressional staff through a series of discussion sessions designed to provide an in-depth look at Congress and its operations with other Washington, D.C., institutions. The program also provides participants an opportunity to build relationships with other interns from throughout the country. A certificate of recognition is presented at the end of the program.

The program runs from October – November 2021 and consists of weekly interactive discussion sessions of an hour and a half each.
