The Native American Congressional Internship offers a summer internship for Native American and Alaska Native students who wish to learn more about the federal government and issues affecting Indian country.

Interns work in congressional and agency offices where they have opportunities to research legislative issues important to tribal communities, network with key public officials and tribal advocacy groups, experience an insider's view of the federal government, and enhance their understanding of nation-building and tribal self-governance.

The internship will take place from May 26 - July 31, 2021.


Applicants must be Native Americans or Alaska Natives who demonstrate:

  • Commitment to a career related to tribal public policy or supporting tribal communities
  • Leadership, public service, integrity, and consensus building
  • Knowledge and skills applicable to a federal agency or congressional office
  • Academic achievement
  • An understanding of the Udall legacy, demonstrated through the application essay
