The Chicago Republican Party is currently accepting applications for the 2015 Summer Internship Program. What ties us together is the core belief that the people can govern themselves. It is the same belief that drew the founders to create this great nation. We believe that government has become far too large and inefficient while taxpayers are routinely brought to bear the cost of its failures. If you share our values of individualism and personal responsibility, we would like to hear from you.
The Chicago Republican Party Internship Program will provide students and recent graduates with a hands-on learning experience. Each intern will participate in the political process and earn valuable experience. In addition, those who complete the required hours will receive a letter of recommendation from Chairman Chris Cleveland and may also earn school credit*.
*If you are receiving internship credit from your school for participating in the Chicago Republican Party internship program, please attach your school’s requirements and other pertinent information.
