The Baucus Leaders program is directly inspired by Max Baucus’ 36 years of service as a U.S. senator for Montana. Every summer we place exceptional undergraduate and graduate students in internships at senate and congressional offices in Washington DC.
Since 2018, Baucus Leaders have worked for Senator Steve Daines (R–MT), Senator Jon Tester (D–MT), Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Senator Charles Grassley (R–IA), Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D–NY), Senator Chuck Schumer (D–NY), Senator Michael Bennet (D-CO), Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) and the United States Senate Finance Committee, among others.
Each internship starts on or around June 1 and ends on or around August 1. Baucus Leaders are given a $5,000 stipend to defray the costs of airfare to and from Washington, D.C., housing, and food during the two-month internship.
