Washington, D.C. - The Armenian Assembly of America is extending the application deadline for its 2022 Terjenian-Thomas Assembly Summer Internship Program in Washington, D.C., to January 10, 2022. Applications to the Assembly's Yerevan Internship Program in Armenia will be accepted through January 10, 2022, as well. Both internship programs provide college students of Armenian descent an opportunity to experience the two nations' capitals, and take part in a full schedule of educational, cultural, networking, and social activities throughout the eight-week duration. Students who are accepted into the Washington, D.C. program are assisted with internship placements in various offices, including congressional, think tanks, media, and governmental agencies. Participants will have the opportunity to meet Members of Congress, noted academicians and other leaders through the Capitol Ideas and Lecture Series programs. Previous students admitted into the Yerevan Internship Program have interned with Armenian governmental offices, NGOs, think tanks, museums, media outlets, medical centers, and more. Over the course of eight weeks, participants will have the opportunity to experience life in their ancestral homeland, tour historical sites around Armenia, meet with Armenia's officials, and more.
