NIAC is pleased to announce its fifth annual Public Service Fellowship. This fellowship is the first and only initiative designed to grant Iranian-American students the opportunity to learn first-hand how the US government works by interning on Capitol Hill.

NIAC will place three Iranian-American students in Congressional offices to fulfill an internship during the months of June to August. Fellows will be required to write about their experience for publication on our website. The leading candidate will receive a stipend of $1000.

Rising college sophomores, juniors, seniors, recent graduates and graduate students who are US citizens or legal permanent residents of Iranian descent are eligible to apply. Responsibilities of the fellow include: attending committee hearings, researching legislation, general office duties, and other activities that promote first-hand knowledge of the American legislative process.

The selection process is highly competitive; applicants are judged on the basis of their academic credentials, demonstrated interest and involvement in public service and the Iranian-American community and the ability to fulfill the needs and expectations of the Congressional office. A background in public policy, political science, economics, international affairs, or journalism is preferred.
