ILF Civic Fellowship Program Deadline Extended

Washington, DC–The ILF’s Civic Fellowship Program has extended its application deadline from December 31, 2018 to January 31, 2019.

Every year, the International Leadership Foundation (ILF) identifies approximately 25 outstanding Asian Pacific American (APA) college students to spend 8 to 10 weeks interning at a federal agency in Washington D.C. during the summer. Students accepted into the program are known as Civic Fellows and will receive a stipend of $2,000 USD upon program completion. In addition to their full-time federal internships, they will attend professional development workshops and leadership training. Fellows are responsible for their own travel, housing, and living expenses. Based on the interests and majors of selected Civic Fellowship candidates, ILF will help place them with federal agencies and the congressional offices.

Undergraduate students of APA heritage are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be United States citizens, and current undergraduate sophomores, juniors, or seniors, with a minimum 3.0 GPA. Additional documents and application materials are required. To learn more or submit an application, visit
