The Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs (CAPAA) and the Asian Pacific Islander Community Leadership Foundation (ACLF) recently announced the launch of a fellowship opportunity for college juniors, seniors, and graduate students to build their legislative and public policy analysis skills on issues affecting the Asian Pacific American community.
Applications are currently being accepted for the January 2010 fellowship program. Individuals selected to participate in the program will gain valuable job experience and an inside look at the government while building leadership skills. Upon completion of the fellowship, the fellow, if eligible, will participate in the ACLF’s Community Leaders Program, which further develops leadership skills through community-based curriculum, project team-building, and mentoring/networking opportunities.
The 2010 internship program begins in January. Priority is given to applications received by December 15. After December 15, applications are considered on a space-available basis. Fellows will be placed in the agency’s Olympia office. ♦
