International Leadership Foundation Is Accepting Applications for 2014 Summer Civic Fellowship Program in Washington D.C.
The International Leadership Foundation (ILF) announces that the application process for the 2014 Civic Fellowship Program is now open. Every year, ILF’s selection committee identifies approximately 30 outstanding Asian Pacific American college students who spend eight to ten weeks interning at a federal agency in Washington D.C. during the summer.
Students who accept the fellowship are known as Civic Fellows, will receive a stipend of 2,000 dollars, attend weekly leadership seminars on Capitol Hill and gain valuable, firsthand working knowledge of the American government system. Fellows are responsible for their own travel, housing and living expenses. Based on the interests and majors of selected Civic Fellowship candidates, ILF will work to place them with over a dozen federal agencies, as well as limited placements in congressional offices and the White House.
Undergraduate students of Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage who are United States citizens and possess a GPA of 3.0 and above are eligible for this fellowship. Applications must be submitted by February 1, 2014. To learn more or submit an application, visit www.ileader.org.
