2005 IAFPE Summer Internship Program
Forum Summer Internship Program Now Accepting Applications
from Indian-American College Students
The Indian-American Forum for Political Education, (www.iafpe-ne.org)
(IAFPE-NE) is now accepting applications for its 2005 Summer Internship
Program. The Forum is seeking applications from motivated
Indian-American college students who want to make a difference in their
communities and is a stepping stone for developing future political
thinkers of Indian origin. Since 1994, IAFPE has sponsored over 100
college students for its flagship Summer Political Internship Program.
In its twelveth year, the program is stronger than ever.
The summer program provide students with a unique opportunity to learn
first-hand about the political process and what it takes to get
involved in politics and policymaking. Interns spend six to ten weeks
working in the offices of congressional leaders, state policymakers,
non-governmental organizations, advocacy groups, and more. Interns will
participate in summer policy sessions with other Forum interns and will
design short or long term projects that connect the Forum with their
organization. Stipends are available for interns who demonstrate
exemplary performance in their internship and who demonstrate a
commitment to the advancement of the Forum and its initiatives.
This past summer, selected interns worked in the offices of Governor
Mitt Romney, Congressman Marty Meehan, Congressman Jim McGovern,
Attorney General Reilly, State Senator Panagiotakos, State Senator
Cheryl Jacques, Congressman Rush Holt (NJ), District Attorney Keating,
and the Indian Consulate. Additionally, summer interns worked
with their respective political offices to assist in the design,
launch, and implementation of the "No Place for Hate" program in
Lowell, MA. The 2005 IAFPE interns will engage in similar co-curricular
activities. Additionally, the program will draw upon its
growing alumni network to connect the summer interns with alumni
Applicants are encouraged to apply early for selective internship
positions. Additional information and applications are available online
at the Forum website: http://www.iafpe-ne.org/internship.asp.
Applications are due by March 1, 2005.
