The Latinx44 Scholarship Program was created by former Obama White House staffers Antoinette Rangel and Alexa Kissinger and is funded by dozens of Latinx former Administration officials.
The program will award at least 10 scholarships to Latinx students to help fund an unpaid or underfunded public service-oriented internship in Washington, DC, or virtually. Each scholarship recipient will be awarded $1,500 for a summer 2021 internship. In addition, scholarship recipients will be paired with a mentor and professional development opportunities throughout the program and beyond.
Eligible internships will focus on policy, community engagement, community service, advocacy, or global relations.
