About this Fellowship

This internship offers a distinctive summer opportunity for Native American and Alaska Native students who are interested in learning more about the Federal legislative process while gaining an insider’s view of the government’s unique trust relationship with Tribes.

Deadlines are typically in January, but be sure to check the competition website for the current cycle’s deadline.

Interns work in congressional and agency offices where they have opportunities to research legislative issues important to Tribal communities, hone their legal research and writing skills, and network with public and Tribal officials and Tribal advocacy groups.

Award Value

Awardees receive full funding for the internship in Washington, D.C., including round-trip airfare, lodging, per diem, and a $1,200 educational stipend.
