Native American Congressional Internships Benefits

Program Description

The Udall Foundation provides a ten-week summer internship in Washington, D.C., for Native American and Alaska Native students who wish to learn more about the Federal government and issues affecting Indian Country. The internship is fully funded: the Foundation provides round-trip airfare, housing, per diem for food and incidentals, and a stipend at the close of the program. Interns 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.

In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be Native American or Alaska Native; a junior or senior in college, a recent graduate from a tribal or four-year college, or a graduate or law student; and a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident.
