Native American Congressional Internship
About the Internship
Even as Native nations achieve greater levels of self-determination, Indian Country
continues to be influenced by U.S. federal law and policy. The Udall Internship
places students in Senate, House, and federal agency offices to learn firsthand
how the U.S. government works with Native nations. Interns will gain a better understanding
of the government to government relationship and how they can use this knowledge
on behalf of their tribes.
Program Dates: May 31 - August 5
