Native American Congressional Internship

 

Description

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. You must have documented citizenship in a federally recognized tribe, state-recognized tribe, or First Nations of Canada (with proof of U.S. permanent residency).
