Internship positions are offered in the fall, spring, and summer semesters in both my Washington, D.C. and District offices. Any student who is enrolled in college or graduate school and is at least 18 years of age is eligible to apply.
As a Member of Congress, I have the privilege of nominating exceptional young people for admission to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the Naval Academy, the Air Force Academy and the Merchant Marine Academy, known collectively as the U.S. Service Academies. My office also works with students interested in the Coast Guard Academy. The U.S. Service Academies offer opportunities for motivated young men and women to serve their country while receiving an excellent education and developing valuable leadership skills. In place of tuition, the Academies require military service after graduation.
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. I invite all high school students in Ohio's Second Congressional District to enter the annual competition.
The Congressional Award is a non-partisan, voluntary, award program open to all 14-23 year olds. Participants earn Bronze, Silver and Gold Congressional Award Certificates and/or Medals. Each level involves setting goals in four program areas: voluntary public service, personal development, physical fitness, and expedition/exploration.
