Native American Congressional Internship
The Native American Congressional Internship Program provides American Indian and Alaska Native students with the opportunity to gain practical experience with the federal legislative process in order to understand first-hand the government-to-government relationship between Tribes and the federal government. The internship is funded by the Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy.
Consider the Udall Internship. Interns are selected on the basis of:
- Commitment to a career related to tribal public policy or supporting tribal communities;
- Leadership, public service, integrity, and consensus building;
- Knowledge and skills applicable to a federal agency or congressional office;
- Academic achievement; and
- An understanding of the Udall legacy, demonstrated through the application essay.
