Support the We Belong Scholarship Campaign to triple the number of Global Leader Internships!

Mentoring today’s college students to become the global leaders of tomorrow.

In 2003, the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute (CHLI) was born from the desire of Members of Congress to help college students of Hispanic background to aspire to public service.

Celebrating CHLI’s 21st year, hundreds of college students have experienced and benefitted from the CHLI Global Leaders internship and fellowship programs. Over 300 CHLI alumni are promoting diversity of thought across our country.

The We Belong Scholarship Campaign was established in 2020 with the goal of tripling the number of CHLI Global Leader internships. We have currently doubled the number of paid internships we host and with your support, you will help ensure that more students have the opportunity to participate in the CHLI Global Leader Program. For many students, the exposure to the Hill and to corporate America, changes the trajectory of their lives—and as a result—elevates our communities and our country.

The interests of our community and our nation are well served by cultivating, developing and empowering future generations of global leaders. CHLI Global Leaders are worth your investment.

We invite you to partner with CHLI and impact a student’s life today, as we prepare a future leader of tomorrow.
