Summer 2023 FLAD Legislative Internships

Open Call for FLAD’s Legislative Internships

The Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) launched the 2nd Edition of the Call for FLAD’s Legislative Internships. This program, designed by FLAD for young Americans of Portuguese Ancestry – aged 18 to 25 -, this year will be enlarged to support seven internships at the offices of Portuguese American elected officials in the United States Congress, and at State Senate and House of Representatives of Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

These are paid, in-person internships, with the goal of providing to the selected candidates first-hand experience of the legislative process and knowledge about local and federal government. In addition, the internships will give interns tools to develop their leadership skills and boost their careers.

Internships will happen between April and August – varies depending on the internship office – with flexible starting date, length and working schedule.

The call is open until March 10, 2023, 11:59 PM, Pacific Time / March, 11, 2023, 2:59 AM.
