Udall Foundation Native American Congressional Internship Program

The Udall Foundation is pleased to announce our 2014 internship and scholarship program opportunities for American Indian and Alaska Native students.

The Native American Congressional Internship program is a fully-funded, ten-week summer internship in Washington, DC, for American Indian and Alaska Native undergraduate, graduate and law students. Interns work in congressional and agency offices where they have opportunities to research legislative issues important to tribal communities, network with public officials and experience an insider’s view of the federal government. The Foundation provides airfare, housing, per diem, and a $1,200 educational stipend. The application deadline is January 31, 2014.

The Udall Scholarship program awards $5,000 merit-based scholarships for college sophomores and juniors seeking a career in tribal health, tribal public policy, or the environment. Two- and four-year college students are encouraged to apply. Scholars participate in a five-day Orientation in Tucson, AZ, to learn from and network with experts, their peers, and members of the Udall family. The award includes life-time membership in the Udall alumni community, a vibrant community offering job and internship opportunities, support for public service initiatives, and intellectual discussion. Applications must be submitted through a Udall faculty representative at the student's college or university. The application deadline is March 5, 2014.

We encourage you to visit our website at We will offer several webinars for applicants of both programs during the week of December 2, 2013. If you don’t find the webinar registration information on our website, please call and ask. I am eager to hear from interested students and faculty directly by email or phone. J
