The Conference on Asian Pacific American Leadership (CAPAL) is currently accepting Internship and Scholarship applications for 2012.
CAPAL scholarships allow outstanding APA students to spend the summer interning for a federal government agency, a Capitol Hill legislative office, or a non-profit organization, and gain firsthand knowledge of the workings of American government. Each CAPAL scholar will be awarded $2,000 in scholarships to support their successful completion of an internship of their choice in the Washington D.C. metro area. Each CAPAL scholar will be responsible for obtaining their own placement.
In partnership with federal government agencies, CAPAL will award internships with stipends at federal offices to outstanding Asian Pacific American (APA) students committed to public service. Past agency placements have included the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Forest Service, Agricultural Research Service, Rural Development, and Food Safety and Inspection Service.
CAPAL is a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational organization dedicated to building leadership and public policy knowledge within the Asian Pacific American community. Its mission is to promote APA interests and success in public service careers, to provide information and education on policy issues affecting the APA community, and to serve the APA community at large.
