“The summer internship with Congressman Scott Perry sponsored by the 4th Congressional District Internship Association was an unparalleled experience on Capitol Hill. From attending committee hearings on pressing national and international issues to researching policies, the DC portion of the internship provided an opportunity to get hands-on with our country’s legislative process. In the York District Office, I was able to assist constituents in their navigation of federal agencies, while at the same time learning how federal policies affect the everyday lives of citizens. The 4th Congressional District internship opened my eyes to the importance of civil service and the tough decisions our Representative and Congress face to make the future bright for the citizens of the 4th District and the United States.”

-Laura Detter, 2015 Summer Intern


The 4th Congressional District Internship Association (formerly the 19th District Internship Association) was created in 1977 as a community involvement, good government initiative to provide financial sponsorship for college students from the 4th Congressional District of Pennsylvania to work in the offices of our Congressman each summer. Internships give students a chance to be a part of government in action, with opportunities to attend hearings, draft response to constituent letters and research issues, as well as to provide staff support services.

Since its inception in 1977, the internship program has been extremely successful in annually sending a significant number of enthusiastic students to Washington for a first-class, first-hand experience with their government.

To support the program, Association members are invited to an annual reception in the 4th District to introduce the interns, new Association members, and guests to the current Association members. Occasionally the Association also organizes a bus trip to Washington for an exciting mix of business and pleasure. Association members and guests are invited to attend at their own expense.

The 4th Congressional District of Pennsylvania is comprised of Adams and York counties and parts of Cumberland and Dauphin counties. The 4th Congressional District Internship Association is not supported by the U.S. House of Representatives.
