WASHINGTON DC: Indo-American Community Services (IACS), a national non-profit supporting the South Asian Community, is continuing its annual partnership connecting collegiate students with Congressional internships in Washington, D.C.

The non-partisan organization places exceptional students in Congressional offices on both sides of the aisle. This program continues the organization’s efforts to encourage civic and political engagement within the Indian-American community.

The Summer 2017 internship program application is live and will be accepted through January 21.
For eight weeks, both graduate and undergraduate students are exposed to policy making in the nation’s capital, first hand. Along with gaining unparalleled insight into public service, legislation construction and constituent care, selected interns are awarded a $2000 stipend after successful completion of the program.

Congressman Bill Foster, Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce, Senator Dan Sullivan, Senator Mark Kirk, Congressman Danny Davis and Congresswoman Robin Kelly advocate for and hosted IACS interns in their D.C. offices.

IACS is excited to see the growth of Indian-American service in government, with this year’s election of five Indian-American representatives to Congress. In its sixth year, the IACS internship program is looking to expand the reach of this enriching opportunity to more students across the country.

“We have already begun outreach efforts to Indian-American student groups across the country, in hopes of lending greater awareness to this program,” said Joy Dhar, co-IACS internship liaison. “Sruthi Rao and I are looking forward to continuing our correspondence and helping place candidates with an interest in public service in Congressional internships.”

It’s a lovely book. It feels energetically clear and light. It’s easy to read, dip in and out and most importantly it offers information without fluff! Blessings on this project.
