Can you believe it is already February? Summer is only FOUR months away! Now is the time to apply or encourage young Sikhs to apply for internships. SALDEF is helping place students in hard-to-get internships with your NJ representatives.
The 2018 SALDEF SikhLEAD New Jersey Summer Internship will bring together a group of young rising Sikh American leaders for an 8-12 week-long program that includes:
- Summer internship with Federal, State, and local Legislators in New Jersey
- Interactive small group discussions with State leaders of industry
- One on one mentoring and advising for each intern
- An opportunity to make a difference in the community through a group capstone project

We also host a series of special programs—including leadership workshops and networking events—to develop the next generation of Sikh American leaders. SALDEF supports each participant with a stipend upon satisfactory completion of the internship.
These competitive positions have advanced the Sikh policy agenda and given Sikh American students or recent graduates unique opportunities. The application deadline is 11:59 pm ET on Wednesday, February 16, 2018. Students of all academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Early applications will be given priority.
