Opportunity: Congressional Leadership Program

Posted: April 12, 2012 by IUsec in Internships

The Indiana 9th Congressional District is Bloomington/Monroe County and the southeastern part of the state.


Congressional Leadership Program






June 11th – August 6th, 2012


Introduction to the Congressional Leadership Program


The Congressional Leadership Program (CLP) introduces college and graduate students to their region and develops their leadership skills so they can effectively serve their community.  CLP’s sessions are designed to help a diverse group of high-achieving college and graduate students learn more about the strengths and challenges of their community and how they might live a life engaged in addressing those issues.


Applicants should be residents of or attending college or graduate school in the Ninth Congressional District.  CLP class size is limited, so the application process is competitive.  Priority consideration will be given to those who apply by May 1st, 2012.  Applicants must attend at least four out of five sessions to successfully complete the program.


If you have any questions, please contact our Jeffersonville Office at 812-288-3999.
