What are important dates for the program?
Here are some key dates:
Will I be placed in an internship position on Capitol Hill?
Acceptance into the fellowship is conditional upon being accepted into a congressional internship, to which you will apply separately. After your interview with us, and upon receiving conditional acceptance from the CLDP, you will receive instructions on which offices we recommend you apply to, and we will help as much as we can to help secure you an internship. Once accepted in the congressional office, you will get a final acceptance from us.
What does the program include?
This is an opportunity for you to meet some of D.C.'s most talented individuals, who can mentor and advise you during the program. In addition, you will learn the skills needed to be successful in D.C., such as networking, public speaking, resume writing and more.
Where will I be living?
I have never been to Washington, D.C. Will you help me get familiar with the city?
Absolutely! We understand this may be the first time you have been to Washington, D.C., or the first time you've left your comfort zone. Your parents or guardians may even have some concerns about letting you go to D.C. for the summer. We will have a survivor's guide to D.C. ready for you, and CLDP staff will be on hand to guide you, mentor you, and even have coffee with you. Beyond that, we will spend orientation time to get you acclimated with the city.
This is during Ramadan. Will you make accommodations for this?
Fasting is challenging under normal circumstances. Considering Ramadan will land squarely in the summer this year, we will adjust class times and workshops throughout the month. In addition, we will provide information to join D.C. Muslims across the city for iftar.
