For Students


My Washington and San Jose offices offer summer, fall and spring internships for college students. An internship is a valuable opportunity to see how a Congressional office functions, and to contribute to our efforts to serve and represent the people of Santa Clara County.


The rising cost of a college education today is squeezing millions of students and families who rely on access to an affordable education to compete in the competitive job market and to preserve their quality of life. Compiled here is a list of scholarships to assist your search for national and local scholarships.

Military Academy Nominations

The U.S. Military Academies - Army, Naval, Air Force, and Merchant Marines - rank competitively with the top academic institutions in the country. These academies offer young people a chance for top-quality education and the opportunity for a solid career in the military. The U.S. government pays for all educational costs.

Congressional Art Competition

Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Artistic Discovery Contest is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our congressional district.

Student App Competition

Established by Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in 2013, this competition is a nationwide event that allows high school students from across the country to compete by creating and exhibiting their software application, or “app,” for mobile, tablet, or computer devices on a platform of their choice.
