College to Congress

College to Congress is a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships that allow students with limited financial means to participate in Congressional internships. Their comprehensive program provides financial support to cover interns' first professional wardrobes, transportation, housing, meals, and various needs.

Why We Invested

The financial implications of living and working in Washington, D.C. creates several barriers to entry and a ripple effect of consequences for students who desire to gain experience in politics. By removing the financial barrier to doing an internship in Congress, College to Congress provides students opportunities that they otherwise could not afford while creating a pipeline and constituency that helps Congress look more like America.

Democracy Fund is proud to support the development of a Congressional workforce that better reflects the constituents it represents.
