ILF Internships Summer 2011
Through the ILF Civic Fellowship Program, many Pakistani-American students have interned in Washington DC. Last year, Leila Shauk and Hassan Pathna Mukhlis were selected. This year again, ILF is providing scholarships to APA college students and will place them in structured Summer Internships with government agencies. ILF Fellows are future APA leaders in the academic, cultural, business, community, medical, professional, or public arenas. ILF provides these future APA leaders with a practical understanding of how our government and legislative process works, says an announcement. It adds:
ILF’s Civic Fellowship Program is the nation’s most prestigious civic leadership program designed specifically for the next generation of APA leaders. The program has nationwide reach and is an exceptional learning and development experience for future leaders. The primary goal of the Fellowship Program is to provide an opportunity for Fellows to learn how to access government in order to help the community. Over the past years, the ILF has provided scholarships, seminars and leadership training for over 1,000 APA college students from across the country.
Our selections and scholarships are merit-based. The only pay or financial assistance Fellows receive for their two-month internship is a $1,500 stipend. Students are responsible for their travel, housing and living expenses associated with the fellowship.
To be eligible for the internship you must be an Asian American undergrad with a GPA of 3.0 and above.
