College to Congress - Program for Pell Students

[Announcement from he-sl listserv]

Colleagues,

I just found out about this awesome opportunity that is reserved for undergraduate students who are eligible for Federal Pell Grants. Please share widely with students!
College to Congress is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to creating pathways for students to intern on Capitol Hill who otherwise could not afford the opportunity - the majority of Congressional internships are unpaid, forcing students to front the bill of a $10,000.00 opportunity. This creates a barrier of entry for students with limited financial means and without political connections. 
The program offers leadership training, mentorships, an alumni network, and stipends to cover flights, meals, housing, and a professional wardrobe - in other words all costs are covered. Interns are also paired with a mentor from the opposite party to demonstrate the power of moving beyond partisan conflict and forging compromise.

The program is now accepting applications to fill 20 spots of summer 2018. Deadline to apply is Nov. 24.  Apply online at http://www.collegetocongress.org/apply.

Regards,
Zaneeta
