Subject: Fwd: Summer Program for minority male college sophmores (Georgetown)

Just passing it on...if you know any undergrads that might be interested, please share with them. The program contact info is below.

The Institute for Responsible Citizenship is currently accepting applications for its summer program at Georgetown University in Washington, DC .

Each summer, 12 of the most promising young minority male college sophomores in the country (possibly 24 this coming summer) are given the chance to travel to the nation's capital and engage in prestigious internships while taking rigorous classes at Georgetown.

The courses in government and economics are designed to provide these young men with the skills necessary to critically analyze the world's problems while adhering to a deep respect for civil liberties. When
the students are not in class or at work, they are often called upon to attend social functions designed to help them network in their field.

In addition, those not placed in paid internships will receive a stipend in the amount of $2500.

business, academics, and the ministry. You should be a sophomore to apply, however, juniors are considered if they are committed to attending graduate or professional school directly following their senior year.

To give you an idea of the kind of students we have in our program, here are some statistics from our 2006 cohort: GPA Range: 3.02 - 3.97 Average: 3.65 Leadership At least one post held at time of applicationMore information, along with the application, can be found on the web
