The Udall Foundation’s Native American Congressional Internship

The Udall Foundation is looking for qualified candidates for its Native American Congressional Internship Program. The 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 relationship between Tribal and federal government. The internship is funded by the Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management, and Policy, and lasts for 10-weeks. Highlights of the program include being surrounded by 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, as well as housing, a living allowance, transportation to and from Washington, D.C., and an educational stipend of $1,200. Eligible Native youth will meet the following criteria:

  • 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.
