We're excited to announce Walmart has renewed their grant of $1 million in CBCF! The grant will help provide career pathways on Capitol Hill for students and young professionals through education and hands-on experience in the nation's capital.
"The CBCF is committed to increasing diversity on Capitol Hill and in the public sector by creating a new generation of informed and engaged citizens and leaders," said Congresswomen Sheila Jackson Lee, Chair, CBCF Board of Directors. "Internships are a critical component toward building a career in public policy. Through Walmart's continued support and dedicated partnership, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation has successfully increased the number of scholars who have access to the intern-to-staffer pipeline."
The CBCF will receive a three-year, $1 million grant to help prepare college students and young professionals for careers in public policy and advocacy. The funding provide exposure to the development and implementation of national policies -- from Capitol Hill to federal field offices -- as well as support intern housing, monthly stipends, professional development and leadership training.
