College to Congress

About College to Congress

College to Congress (C2C) is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit that offers juniors, seniors, recent graduates, and graduate students of traditionally underrepresented backgrounds the opportunity to intern on Capitol Hill. We cover all costs associated with an internship in a congressional office, such as transportation to and from DC, housing during your internship, money for professional dress, and a stipend during your internship to cover any additional costs. In addition, we offer to mentor and training to ensure our interns are ready to succeed in their professional careers. We are changing Congress to truly reflect the people it serves, one intern at a time.

“Interning on Capitol Hill has always been an aspiration of mine but frankly wasn’t financially feasible because of my socioeconomic status. College 2 Congress completely alleviated those concerns, as they provided the financial stability for me to intern on Capitol Hill without worrying if I could afford it. Equally important, they also provided me tremendous professional and personal support, which allowed me to take advantage of my internship to the fullest degree. Their online course (C2C-U) gave me the necessary tools and insights including learning how to network, learning proper wardrobe, and how to make the most of my internship. Lastly, the staff was so incredibly helpful whenever I had any personal issues or problems, they were all valuable resources for me. ”

“As a first generation college student who has always been passionate about helping people through public service, I always wanted a chance to work on the Hill but could never afford it. Being accepted to College to Congress made it possible for me to spend a summer working with my Congressman by subsidizing the low-paid internship program. In addition to that they provided a on-site support and training, networking oppertunities, and free housing. Such an unbeatable expereince. ”
