    Congressional Internship Application Deadline

    Tuesday - March 15, 2005     08:00 AM

    Apply Now for the NIAC Public Service and Journalism Fellowship Program!

    The National Iranian American Council (NIAC)—a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that promotes civic participation among the Iranian-American community—invites Iranian-American college students to apply to its Summer 2005 Public Service and Journalism Fellowship Program in Washington, DC.

    This program is the first and only initiative offering Iranian-American students the opportunity to experience public policy-making first hand in the nation’s capital. The full-time paid internship will run for 11 weeks this summer in a Congressional office. NIAC will cover travel to and from Washington, DC, housing for three months, and a stipend of $500 per month. Typical responsibilities of the intern may include attending committee hearings; working on special projects; researching legislation; general office duties; and other activities that promote first-hand knowledge of the American legislative process.

    All college and graduate students who are US citizens or legal permanent residents of Iranian descent are eligible and encouraged to apply. The selection process is highly competitive; applicants will be judged on the basis of their academic credentials, demonstrated interest in community and public service, and ability to fulfill the needs and expectation of the Congressional office they will be placed with. A background in public policy, political science, economics, or international affairs is preferred.

    Interested students should submit by March 15, 2005:

    * A completed application
    * Resume
    * Current college transcript
    * Three letters of recommendation, two academic and one from an employment supervisor
    * 500-word essay addressing the following question: How has being Iranian American influenced your decision to pursue a career in public service or journalism?

    Visit www.niacouncil.org today for an application and full instructions. Completed applications are due March 15. At that time, NIAC will select a number of finalists, who will be asked to submit supplemental information to the Congressional office for a final decision. At the end of the summer internship, the fellow will be required to submit to NIAC a summary report on the internship experience.
