About Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute

Since the 1978 establishment of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute as a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization, its leadership development programs have provided resources that students can use in their educational pursuits and beyond. CHCI's goal is to produce more Latino leaders, and it takes pride in its interaction with Congress and emphasis on community.

CHCI interns work for the organization's president and CEO or chief operating officer. They can also be based in the strategic alliances and events, human resources, communications and marketing departments. Interns interact with government officials and attend weekly leadership development sessions. Students can apply to CHCI's Public Policy Fellowship, Graduate and Young Professional Fellowship or the congressional intern program.


Open to undergraduates or recent graduates who are U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. Strong analytical skills, writing abilities and a history of community service are required. A 3.0 GPA is preferred.
