BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — Congressman Kevin McCarthy is currently accepting applications for the Summer Internship Program.

Those interested in the program are expected to have completed at least their first year of college with a minimum 3.0 Grade Point Average and possess good writing and computer skills. Preference will be given to residents of California’s 23rd Congressional District, which includes portions of Kern, Tulare, and Los Angeles counties.

For students from the 23rd Congressional District, the Summer Internship Program is currently scheduled to be an eight-week program. Interns will spend two weeks in the Bakersfield district office and six weeks in the Washington, D.C. offices where time is shared between the congressional office and the leadership office.

Interns are responsible for their expenses, including transportation and lodging costs, and may be eligible to receive a $2,500 stipend before taxes.

For students outside of the congressional district, the program is slated to span no more than 6 weeks in the Washington, D.C. offices. Interns will be responsible for their expenses, including transportation and lodging costs, and may be eligible for a smaller stipend before taxes.

Those interested in applying can find applications here.

The application deadline is Friday, March 19.
