About the program

The summer internship program in the Office of Senator Thanh Hai Ngo will provide young Canadians from Vietnamese communities across the country with an opportunity to gain valuable work experience in the Senate of Canada. The objective of this internship program is to provide Vietnamese Canadian youth with marketable skills and practical work experience in human rights awareness, communication and office administration that will prepare them for future employment. Interns will also have the opportunity to deepen their understanding and engage in international and Canadian politics.

It costs approximately $1000 per month to cover accommodation, meals and living expenses in Ottawa. In order to assist students with travel and living expenses related to the internship, chosen candidates will receive a stipend of $700.00 per month.
