Young accepting student applications for 2013 Congressional Leadership Program03/06/13
Rep. Todd Young (R-IN9) announced on Monday that the 9th District Congressional offices are accepting applications for the 9th District’s Congressional Leadership Program.
The Congressional Leadership Program (CLP), which is developed and launched by Young’s staff last year, introduces college and graduate students to their region and develops their leadership skills so they can effectively serve their community. 11 students participated in the program last year.
CLP’s sessions are designed to help a diverse group of high-achieving college and graduate students learn more about the strengths and challenges of their community and how they might live a life engaged in addressing those issues.
Applicants should be residents of, or attending college or graduate school in, the 9th Congressional District. CLP class size is limited, so the application process is competitive. Priority consideration will be given to those who apply by May 1, 2013. Applicants must attend at least four out of five sessions to successfully complete the program.
Potential applicants who have questions should contact our Jeffersonville Office at 812-288-3999. The application and a sample calendar of activities can be found at http://toddyoung.house.gov/congressional-leadership-program/.
Indiana’s 9th District includes all or parts of Brown, Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, Jackson, Johnson Lawrence, Monroe, Morgan, Orange, Scott, and Washington Counties in southeastern Indiana.
