The National Italian American Foundation is excited to run the NIAF Congressional Fellowship Program for the second year. During the fall 2017, the Foundation will place outstanding Italian American college students, graduate students and recent graduates in offices of members of the Italian American Congressional Delegation (IACD) to encourage and support the next generation of Italian American leadership.
Five students and/or recent graduates will be selected as NIAF Congressional Fellows and will travel to Washington D.C. to work in a Congressional office during the fall of 2017. NIAF will award fellows with astipend of $1000 to aid with travel and living expenses while in Washington.
Fellows will also receive training at NIAF headquarters and will be invited to participate in NIAF events throughout the fall, including NIAF Public Policy Forums and our 42nd Annual Gala Weekend from November 3-5.
