Available only to African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans, the program provides students with the opportunity to merge academic theory with practical application in the workplace.
There are many opportunities available for the 2011-2012 fall, winter, and summer seasons and most of the positions are located in the Washington DC area. All interns will receive pre-employment training, expert counseling on career choices, financial management and professional development, and recognition for fulfilling the requirements of the program.
To apply, applicants must submit an online application with all attachments; must provide documents to prove U.S. Citizenship; must have a minimum 3.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) on 4.0 scale; and must have completed at least their undergraduate freshman year in college.
Completed applications are reviewed for academic qualifications, career goals, professional experience, and personal interests. Weekly stipends range from $425 - $550.
If transportation is needed for out-of-town students, funding will be provided to pay for round-trip travel from the student's campus or home residence to and from their work site. Financial assistance is also available for interns who need to locate suitable housing, and help is provided to make all move-in arrangements. Students, however, are responsible for day-to-day commuting expenses.
