HAF Launches 2011 Capitol Hill Internship Program

Washington, D.C. (November 16, 2010) - The Hindu American Foundation (HAF) announced yesterday the launch of its Hindu American Capitol Hill Leadership Initiative, an eight week internship program in the summer of 2011.
We are excited to provide this unique opportunity for young Hindu Americans to be part of the legislative process on Capitol Hill,” said Sheetal Shah, HAF’s Senior Director.  “The Capitol Hill Leadership Initiative will allow both undergraduate and graduate students to actively engage in politics, educate Members of Congress and staff about Hinduism and global Hindu issues, and learn more about the inner workings of our nation’s primary legislative body.”
Details of the internship program along with the application and minimum requirements are available on HAF's website. Prior to the start of the internship, selected applicants will also have the opportunity to learn more about public policy and Hindu American advocacy through HAF sponsored training sessions.
