ILF Civic Fellowship Accepting Asian Pacific American Student Applications for 2018
The International Leadership Foundation (ILF) is pleased to announce that the application process for the 2018 Civic Fellowship Program is open and ongoing until December 15, 2017. Every year, ILF’s selection committee identifies approximately 30 outstanding Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander college students to spend 8 to 10 weeks interning at a federal agency in Washington D.C. during the summer.
Students accepted into the program are known as Civic Fellows and will receive a stipend of $2,000 upon program completion. In addition to their full-time federal internships, they will attend weekly professional development workshops and leadership training. Fellows are responsible for their own travel, housing, and living expenses.
“One of ILF’s goals is to prepare and advocate for the next generation of leaders in public service,” shared Chairman of ILF Dr. Paul Hsu. “It is so important to increase exposure and understanding of civic engagement so that young leaders can take action to support their communities in relevant ways.”
Based on the interests and majors of selected Civic Fellowship candidates, ILF will help place them with federal agencies, congressional offices, or the White House.
Undergraduate students of American Asian, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander heritage are encouraged to apply. Requirements include United States citizens, minimum 3.0 GPA, and current undergraduate sophomores, juniors, or seniors. Additional documents and application materials required. Applications will open November 1, 2017 and must be submitted by December 15, 2017. To learn more or submit an application, visit www.ILFnational.org
