WHIAPPI: deadline for fall internship https://sites.ed.gov/aapi/stay-connected/internship/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=

The White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in Washington, D.C., and its Western Regional Office in Seattle, WA, offers full-time internships during the spring, summer, and fall. Part-time applicants who can commit to at least 20 hours a week will be considered, although the Initiative prioritizes full-time applicants (32-40 hours a week).

The Initiative is responsible for the implementation of the President's Executive Order 13515, dated October 14, 2009.  Its purpose is to develop, monitor, and coordinate executive branch efforts to improve the quality of life of AAPIs through increased participation in federal programs.  The Initiative is housed at the Department of Education but its scope is government-wide.

Interns at the Initiative are responsible for assisting the staff on a wide range of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) issues and priorities, including capacity-building, civil rights, data disaggregation, economic development, education, health, immigration, language access, and workforce diversity.  In addition, interns will help write policy memos and proposals, draft blogs, assist with communications and social media, coordinate and staff events, and conduct outreach to national and local AAPI organizations and leaders. WHIAAPI Seattle interns will focus primarily on expanding AAPI regional engagement efforts through effective outreach and event planning.

Applicants for intern positions must be undergraduates or graduate students who are enrolled at least half-time.  Ideally, the candidate will already be familiar with AAPI issues and have outstanding research, writing, communications, and computer skills. 

How to Apply:*

If you are interested in applying, please send the following to whitehouseaapi@ed.gov:

(*If not accepted to this program, your application may be passed onto other federal agencies for consideration.)

All internship positions at the Initiative are unpaid.  The United States Government does not discriminate in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, disability and genetic information, age, membership in an employee organization, or other non-merit factor.
