Udall Foundation Native American Congressional Internship Program
A summer internship with U.S. Congress members in Washington D.C. for Indigenous students to gain practical experience with the federal legislative process and an understanding of relationships between Tribal and federal governments
NNI and the Morris K. and Stewart L. Udall Foundation co-manage the Udall Foundation Native American Congressional Internship Program (NACIP), which offers summer internships for undergraduate, graduate, and law students. The cohort program provides American Indian and Alaska Native students with opportunities to gain practical experience with the federal legislative process and understand first-hand the government-to-government relationship between U.S. Native nations and the federal government.
NNI provides the interns with seminars on the Native Nation Building approach and an opportunity to hone their citizen engagement and action planning skills throughout the 10-week summer internship.
