The Congressional Internship is designed for AAPI undergraduate aged students looking to increase their experience in public policy and service. The paid, eight-week long summer program places Interns in congressional offices and provides them with the opportunity to develop their leadership and professional skills, encourages political engagement, and fosters interests in public service careers.
All interns are required to participate in APAICS orientation and training programs, complete weekly journals, and submit a program evaluation at the end of the internship. A schedule of internship activities will be provided upon arrival to Washington, D.C.
The APAICS Congressional Internship Program provides a $2,500 stipend and a round-trip flight — within the continental U.S. — sponsored by Southwest Airlines. Housing is not provided.
Unfortunately, the application has closed for this cycle.
