WASHINGTON, D.C. – A Beavercreek native was selected for an internship in the U.S. Senate. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today announced that Gurjot Kaur is serving as a legislative intern in Brown’s Capitol Hill office. Kaur is currently pursuing degrees in Business Economics and Finance at the University of Dayton.
“Ohio students – like Gurjot – exemplify how strong families, teachers, and Ohio communities continue to produce the next generation of world-class leaders,” Brown said. “An internship allows students from either Ohio schools or Ohio communities to serve their state while gaining invaluable experience by working on a wide range of projects.”
“I’m very excited to have this opportunity to work in Senator Brown’s office this summer and to learn more about the legislative process and public service,” said Kaur. “This internship will allow me to experience Capitol Hill firsthand and explore career options down the road.”
Interns work alongside staff members to address constituent requests and concerns. In Washington, D.C. a typical day could include speaking with constituents on the phone, greeting visitors to the office, organizing incoming correspondence, attending Senate committee hearings and briefings, and leading tours of the U.S. Capitol Building.
Students may earn college credit in addition to the educational benefit and professional development opportunities.
