Congressman offers summer internships for students

Photos and Story by

U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader, D-Ore., is offering summer internships for college students in the region.

Qualified applicants must receive academic credit from an accredited educational institution, such as Portland Community College. The selected intern would work in Rep. Schrader’s Oregon City office, not his Washington, D.C., office.

Voters sent Schrader to Congress in 2008, replacing Rep. Darlene Hooley, who retired. Prior to that, he served in the Oregon Legislature. He represents Oregon’s 5th Congressional District, which includes suburban Portland, Marion and Polk counties to the south and runs as far west as the Oregon coast.

Applicants should submit a cover letter and résumé via e-mail to
