”College to Congress enhances socio-economic diversity on the Hill by giving access to high-profile internships—almost a prerequisite for a Hill career—to qualified students across the country. Americans from all backgrounds should have a voice in the city that changes lives; C2C gives the tools and resources to make this mission truly effective and I am grateful to have been a part of it.”

"I liked knowing that I had people in my corner. Being surrounded by talented, smart, capable people inspired me to push myself to be my best, which was exciting. But, more than that, I knew I had a support system there in D.C. if I needed it."

"My advisor told me about this program. At first, I found it too good to be true! They pay for everything: housing, food, even dry-cleaning bills for your office clothes. I had always wanted to intern on Capitol Hill, but it was inaccessible for me as someone from a low-income household. College to Congress was able to make it a reality for me. The program is amazing! It's opening doors for students who couldn't otherwise get here.”
