The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute Welcomes its Fall 2012 Global Leaders Program Participants

Washington, DCThe Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI) proudly announces the CHLI Global Leaders Internship & Fellowship Program Fall class of 2012. This program provides an opportunity for exceptional university students from diverse backgrounds to live, work and study in our nation’s capital.

The CHLI Global Leaders Internship and Fellowship Program offers a dual-faceted program for academic credit and Congressional work experience for the rising generation of young American leaders. In addition, CHLI Interns collaborate with public policy experts and corporations that play an important role in both the domestic and global economy.

The CHLI Global Leaders Internship and Fellowship Program enables outstanding young Americans with a strong interest in the U.S. Hispanic community to expand their professional horizons and enhance their understanding of government and business by conducting policy and business oriented research and related professional activities in Washington, D.C. for an academic semester.

The four students selected for the Fall 2012 program, will spend fifteen weeks working closely with Congress and corporations, and will take classes on applied politics and political management with the Semester in Washington Program at The George Washington University.

The CHLI Global Leaders Internship and Fellowship Program brings students together from diverse backgrounds. The Fall 2012 participants have experience in areas such as health care, international affairs, applied research, and agriculture. "A variety of backgrounds in our students only accentuates the rich diversity of the Hispanic community, and provides a great opportunity for our future leaders to collaborate and expose themselves to different ideas,” expressed Mary Ann Gomez, CHLI Executive Director.
