TCA 2017 Summer Internship Program
The Turkish Coalition of America (TCA) is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for the 10th Annual Washington Summer Internship Program.
The TCA Internship Program is open to undergraduate/graduate students and recent graduates of Turkish American heritage.
Now in its tenth year, the TCA Washington Summer Internship Program has provided 162 internship opportunities for young Turkish Americans at Congressional offices throughout Washington, DC. Designed to enhance Turkish American participation in political life, the program provides an opportunity for young Turkish Americans to live and work in the nation’s capital, learn about the American political process, contribute to U.S.-Turkey relations and the TCA mission, and explore career opportunities in public affairs.
TCA also partners with the Atlantic Council year round to provide Turkish Americans with educational opportunities in global affairs and public policy through TCA internships at the Atlantic Council. Since 2014, TCA has placed 4 interns with the Atlantic Council. Applicants interested in participating in TCA’s Internship Partnership with the Atlantic Council during the summer of 2017 should apply to the 2017 Washington Summer Internship Program and indicate their interest in this program on the application.
Summer internship opportunities last up to 10 weeks, June-August 2017. TCA accepts qualified applicants to the program and then facilitates their placement as interns on Capitol Hill or at other DC-based nonprofit organizations. TCA provides a monthly stipend for the duration of the internship.
