TWU Junior To Be Congressional Intern

TWU Junior To Be Congressional Intern

4/12/02


DENTON — Texas Woman's University junior Lilyan Prado will spend eight weeks in Washington, D.C. this summer as a congressional intern through the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's Summer Internship Program.

Ms. Prado, a resident of Denton studying bilingual education, is one of 30 Latino students from the United States, Puerto Rico and Guam who received internships. Her internship will begin June 8 and conclude Aug. 2. She will learn in which congressional office she will intern after arriving in Washington. Interns, however, are typically placed with congressional members from their home district or state, CHCI stated.

Interns assist permanent congressional staff with tasks such as constituent communications, attending hearings, legislative research and office administration. Interns also are required to write a research paper, submitted at the end of the program.

CHCI selects interns based on their academic record, demonstrated leadership skills on campus or in the community and interest in public policy. No specific major is required for the program. Interns are provided with round-trip transportation to Washington, housing at a university dormitory and a $2,000 stipend by CHCI.

Ms. Prado, a native of Guatemala, is the daughter of Juan Luis Prado and Enna Cecilia Mejia.
