APAICS 2009 Summer Internship Program

I interned in 2007 in Washington D.C. and had a great time. In my time there, I was fortunate to meet a lot of people and organizations. One of the groups I got to know were the APAICS interns. While I didn't get to know all of them, I knew a few and they were a pretty tight group. Hence why you should continue their legacy and apply to become an APAICS intern. Work fast! Deadline is Jan. 31st, 2009!


The Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies (APAICS) invites college students to apply to the 2009 Summer Internship Program in Washington, DC. The term of the internship will be from June 8 to July 31, 2009.

APAICS is a non-partisan, non-profit, educational organization whose mission is to promote the participation of Asian American and Pacific Islanders in the political process. Through our internship program, APAICS hopes to encourage the political and civic involvement of young people, to foster their interest in political and public policy-related careers, and to develop their leadership skills.

APAICS places our interns in the U.S. Congress, federal agencies and institutions that further APAICS' mission. Interns attending continental U.S. schools will receive a stipend. Interns attending Hawaii schools, or who live in Hawaii or any of our Pacific Islands, will also receive a stipend and a small amount to help cover additional transportation costs. All interns will be required to complete weekly journals, and a program evaluation at the end of the internship. A schedule of intern activities, which will also be sent to the supervisors, will be provided upon arrival to Washington, DC.
