Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI) has Extended the Deadline for its Global Leaders Internship and Fellowship Program for the Fall 2013 semester

Washington, D.C. - The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI) and The George Washington University (GW) Semester in Washington Politics Program invite qualified undergraduate and graduate students from the United States and Puerto Rico to apply for the CHLI Global Leaders Internship & Fellowship Program for the Fall 2013 Semester.


Students will work on project-based programs that provide hands-on experience and also strengthen their understanding of public policy. Through a 12 to 15 week program (one semester) students will work closely with Congress and respected corporations in Washington D.C., and will earn academic credit hours. The CHLI scholarship includes round trip airfare to and from where they reside, monthly transportation stipend, a $2,000 living stipend, and matriculation and housing for GW for the semester.


Interns and Fellows will work closely with Members of Congress. In the past, CHLI Interns and Fellows have worked with Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Congressman Henry Cuellar, Congressman Albio Sires, Senator Rob Portman, as well as with our Chairman Lincoln Diaz-Balart during his time in Congress.


Participants will also have the opportunity to work with Fortune 500 corporations in their Government Affairs/Federal Affairs offices in Washington, D.C. "The Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. My experience interning in Congress and at General Motors was an eye opening experience that not only broadened my horizon but also my perspective on how imperative our Latino culture is in our nation's success." said Nick Bustamante, spring 2012 CHLI Global Fellow.


Greg Lebel, Director of Semester in Washington Politics at GW, said, "The breadth of experiences and perspectives to which students are exposed only enhances the value of their academic experience here at GW." "The Semester in Washington Program is not only a great way to earn class credit but it considerably compliments anyone's internship experience in D.C.," Nick added.


The complete application for the Fall 2013 CHLI Global Leaders Internship & Fellowship Program is available on All applications must be submitted online by May 22, 2013. Additional materials must be mailed to CHLI at 734 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20005 and be postmarked on or before May 22, 2013. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered.
