At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Indo-American Community Services Internships

The IACS Leadership Internship is an eight-week long paid summer internship that provides a unique opportunity for college students of Indian descent to learn about the U.S. legislative and public policy-making process. Selected candidates will have an opportunity to intern at the offices of U.S. Senate and House lawmakers or in House and Senate leadership offices.

Interns usually are assigned administrative support tasks like answering phones, responding to constituent requests, researching for pending bills and assisting with event planning and press conferences.

Interns will have an opportunity to participate in educational seminars, leadership mentoring/training sessions and to visit cultural and historical sites in Washington D.C. Alumni will return to their communities knowing what it takes to pass legislation and how they can influence public policy‐making.

Application Information:
Please see the IACS website for details regarding eligibility, funding, and submitting your application. The deadline for submission is February 15, 2013.
