Van Scoyoc Associates is pleased to welcome eight students to our 2015 summer intern class.  Interns gain valuable Washington experience working closely with our professional staff to assist clients in a variety of ways, including attending and reporting on Congressional hearings and briefings, conducting research projects, drafting memorandum and reports, and assisting with meeting and event coordination. 

“I am always excited to have smart, energetic, young people join us over the summer,” firm President and CEO, H. Stewart Van Scoyoc, said.  “Our intern program offers students first-hand experience in government and lobbying, and, I hope, further encourages them to remain involved in the public policy debate.”
