Arizona Law Student Selected as Udall Intern

The Udall Foundation recently announced that Cara Wallace, a 1L at the College of Law, is one of 12 students from 12 tribes and 11 universities selected as 2013 Native American Congressional Interns. Interns were selected by an independent review committee of nationally recognized Native educators and tribal policy leaders on the basis of academic achievement and a demonstrated commitment to careers in tribal public policy.

This highly regarded internship program is intended to provide American Indians and Alaska Natives with an insider’s view of the federal government. The internship is located in Washington, D.C., and is known for placing students in extremely competitive internship positions in Senate and House offices, committees, Cabinet departments, and the White House, where they are able to observe government decision-making processes firsthand.

The 12 Udall Interns will complete an intensive, 10-week internship in the summer of 2013. Special enrichment activities will provide opportunities to meet with key decision makers. From 1996 through 2013, 209 American Indian and Alaska Native students from 110 tribes will have participated in the program.
