The Secular Coalition for America Announces Capitol Hill Scholars

The Secular Coalition for America has started its Capitol Hill Scholars program — a fantastic step to get young atheists and Humanists involved in national government.

… Our goal is to encourage the best young minds within the secular community to work within the Washington, D.C. political system and establish a presence where federal policy is formed. Our Scholars take on unpaid internships with U.S. Congressional offices, and they are sponsored by the Secular Coalition for America through stipends that help to defray the costs of living during their internships.

By doing this important work, our scholarship winners gain invaluable experience in public policy at the heart of American government, while showing to the political world the best of what the secular community has to offer.

I can’t wait to see this program expand. It’s something conservative Christians have perfected over the years and we need to catch up quickly.

The SCA is also offering college students in the D.C. area a chance to serve in the Secular Coalition Policy Leadership Program this fall.

Anyone else wish you had these opportunities available to you when you were in college?

I’m totally jealous.

    Thanks for posting this, Hemant. Sasha Bartolf (legislative director) has done such an amazing job putting together this unique program… any students in the DC area should, at a minimum, check out the link for more information.
