    Intern in Washington, DC, This Summer

    SikhLEAD Internship Program - Applications Due Feb 14 - www.sikhlead.org

    Are you interested in getting a behind the scenes look of what goes on in your Senator or Congresswoman’s office? Have you ever wondered what goes on in a federal agency? The SikhLEAD Internship Program partners with congressional offices, federal agencies and other DC based organizations to provide Sikh Americans with enriching internship experiences. You walk the halls where history is made every day—this is an experience that will surely change your perspective on how this nation was made and how it functions.

    Curious? Click here to watch a video about the internship program.


    Law students, graduate students, college students and recent grads of all majors and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Past particpants have included astrophysics, English, international relations, and biology majors who have interned in Congress, at the White House, at the Department of Justice, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Internship placements are made based on your interests, credentials, and the needs of the host office. Participants are placed on a rolling basis. Apply early as the program is competitive. The application deadline is Friday, February 14, 2014.

    Apply today - early applications get preference!

    This internship program is an avenue to live in Washington, DC, during the summer while exploring a potential career track, creating a network of professional and personal contacts, developing real-world skills, and gaining experience that will open doors in the future. While intern responsibilities will vary based on placement, you may have the chance to work in a Congressman’s press office, develop and advocate for policy positions, and help community members in need.

    Join us in Washington, DC, this summer! Apply today!

    SALDEF awards all selected participants with a $1500 stipend for the summer. Throughout the duration of the internship, SALDEF will host a series of special programming and opportunities, such as leadership workshops, networking events, and cultural outings in DC, to further contribute to the development of the next generation of leaders.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
