Washington: A Chicago-based Indian American organisation has announced a Capitol Hill internship program for two students of Indian origin, which will give them an opportunity to work with the US lawmakers for eight weeks.

For the second consecutive year, Indo-American Community Services (IACS) announced that the programme is open to all Indo-American college undergraduates and graduates from Illinois with an interest in public service and policy making.

Selected students will have an opportunity to intern at the offices of US Senate and House lawmakers or in House and Senate leadership offices.

Leadership interns will receive a stipend of USD 1,500 from IACS.

"The goal of the Leadership Internship Program is to create a corps of young Indian American leaders with the skills, outlook and contacts necessary to generate and sustain positive change in Washington DC and within their local communities," IACS said in a statement.

Last year`s IACS Leadership interns worked in the office of Senator Mark Kirk.
