This Native youth listserv item shares information about the Native
American Congressional Internship program!
The Udall Foundation
provides a ten-week summer internship in Washington, D.C., for Native
American and Alaska Native students (college juniors or seniors, recent
graduates from tribal or four-year colleges, or graduate or law students) who
wish to learn more about the federal government and issues affecting Indian
Country. This is a fully funded internship and the
Foundation provides round-trip airfare, housing, per diem for food and incidentals,
and a stipend at the close of the program.
Twelve interns will be selected to work in congressional and agency offices
where they have opportunities to research legislative issues important to
tribal communities, network with key public officials and tribal advocacy
groups, experience an insider’s view of the federal government, and enhance
their understanding of nation-building and tribal self-governance. Watch the
informational video to learn more about this exciting internship
opportunity in Washington, DC.
