Native American Congressional Internship

About the Internship: Even as Native nations achieve greater levels of self-determination, Indian Country continues to be influenced by U.S. federal law and policy. The Udall Internship places students in Senate, House, and federal agency offices to learn firsthand how the U.S. government works with Native nations. Interns will gain a better understanding of the government to government relationship and how they can use this knowledge on behalf of their tribes.
Program Dates: May 27 – August 1
What It Is:
A community of 12 American Indian and Alaska Native college, graduate, and law students who live and work in Washington, D.C., during the summer;
Access to a network of American Indian professionals and alumni who work on behalf of tribal nations; and
Housing, a living allowance, transportation to and from Washington, D.C., and an educational stipend of $1,200.
The Udall Foundation arranges placements for law students, graduate students, and undergraduates.
