Internship Description of Duties:
DO YOU WANT TO INTERN IN CONGRESS THIS SUMMER?
Interning on Capitol Hill is often the first career move for a young person wanting to make a difference through public service. It’s also one of the most exclusive internship positions to obtain and just so happens to be in one of the most expensive cities in the U.S.
Capitol Hill interns build leadership skills, policy knowledge, and get to work on America’s toughest challenges. Often times, lack of financial resources and political connections deter students from seeking this opportunity. That’s why we exist. College to Congress (C2C) wants to help you land your dream internship working on Capitol Hill.
HOW DOES THE C2C PROGRAM WORK?
College To Congress is reserved for undergraduate students who are eligible for Federal Pell Grants . Our internship program is nine weeks long and takes place in Washington, D.C. If you are selected to join the program, we will work with you to secure an internship in either the House of Representatives or the Senate using our vast network of bipartisan offices who partner with us.
If selected, pack your bags because we’ve got you covered! Literally. Here is a list of what the C2C scholarship includes:
● Transportation to/from Washington, D.C.
● Intern housing on Capitol Hill
● Professional clothing allowance
● Daily meal stipend
● A mentor from the opposite party
● Leadership training on financial literacy, interview skills, key policy initiatives, and how to become politically active both in D.C. and back home
