An Opportunity to Intern on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC! – UConn Center for Career Development

Calls on all future public servants! College Congress is looking for highly motivated students with low backgrounds or low representation to apply for a full-time congressional internship program in Washington, DC.

College of Congress (C2C) is a non-profit organization that creates pathways for students to specialize in Congress who could not afford to do otherwise. By empowering the next generation of enthusiastic young leaders to begin their careers in the public service, we are one step closer to creating a more effective Congress that reflects the true diversity of America.

I always wanted to specialize in Capitol Hill, but it was not accessible to me as someone with a low-income household. C2C managed to make it a reality for me. The program is amazing!
