The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI)
The Graduate Fellowship program is geared toward Latinos who have completed college and those who have finished their graduate studies with unique paid fellowship opportunities – nine months in Washington, D.C. during which time they work in congressional offices and federal agencies, focusing on public policy in areas critical to the U.S.' competitive position. The Graduate fellows' intensive work experience is enhanced by weekly leadership training sessions that allow them to meet with national leaders and engage in substantive policy discussions. In addition, Graduate fellows produce a public policy brief. Graduate fellows also must organize a policy summit. Because of the wealth of information, contacts, and political activity in Washington D.C., the Graduate Fellowship Program offers an excellent opportunity for participants to affirm their career goals. All participants also receive personal support and guidance from CHCI staff and Alumni Association.
