Subject: Seeking Your Help

Hi all,

We are seeking your help with a unique opportunity.  SHRM, in conjunction with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) will be providing five lucky students with the opportunity to participate in an exclusive 2017 summer internship/scholarship program.

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) is a group of 26 Members of Congress of Hispanic descent.  The Caucus is dedicated to voicing and advancing issues affecting Hispanic Americans in the United States.  The medium in which the Caucus accomplishes this goal is through their Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI). CHCI is a 501(c)(3) leadership and development organization that works to educate, empower and connect decision makers with Hispanic American, with a focus on Hispanic Youth.

SHRM has supported CHCI since 2009 and has worked diligently to build relationships with elected members of the CHC in order to leverage SHRM’s expertise as a thought leader on relevant issues on Capitol Hill. In 2016, SHRM and CHCI created a summer internship/scholarship program aimed at supporting Hispanic youths with an interest in human resources.  For 2017, we will again place interns in the Southern California area (3), as well as Dallas, TX(1) and Chicago, IL (1).
