Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Internships
Interns receive a stipend with their internship placement to offset personal expenses, and housing is provided. Three different internship programs are offered at different dates. They include CBCF Emerging Leaders Internship Program, CBCF Communications Internship Program and
CBCF Congressional Internship. Each one has different requirements for eligibility and stipends may vary with each.
Interns work 30 hours a week in their assigned position. In addition, they attend professional development seminars and lectures. Spring semester interns also are required to take 3 courses at George Washington University. Internships provide students a unique opportunity to work in the House or Senate with government leaders and other politicians.
What's the difference between internships and externships?
The internships are sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF), a nonprofit organization in Washington, D.C. working to improve the lives of African American and underserved communities through education and public policy. Students interested in an internship may apply online. Their application must include three letters of recommendation and a college transcript. Recommendations must be from a college dean, department chair, academic professor, or advisor.
