Scholarship and Internship Opportunity for Native American Vets

Good afternoon,

I hope you are well. I am writing to inform you of an opportunity my organization has for Native American Veterans.  We have scholarships available for Native American Veterans that would entitle them to a fully-funded, paid, full-time internship position with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Washington, DC. I am wondering if you would be able to circulate this email and the attached document around your organization and/or direct any interested applicants you know of to me for further steps?

This full-time internship position is facilitated by The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars (TWC) and is specially designed for Native American Veterans. The program runs from September to December and takes place in the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in Washington, DC. There is a $300 travel stipend provided as reimbursement for travel to Washington, DC. Housing is provided and there is also a biweekly stipend provided to interns throughout the ten week program.

As stated above, the position is with USAID. USAID is the “lead U.S. Government agency that works to end extreme global poverty and enable resilient, democratic societies to realize their potential” (usaid.gov). This TWC internship is designed to assist the federal government with hiring and training the next generation of leaders. It is focused on supporting federal agencies so that they can promote diversity in the federal workforce and increase the number of veterans hired by the government.

Please let me know if you have any questions! I am excited to connect with you and hope that we can serve the Native American Veteran community together. Thanks so much for your time and assistance!
