Privado completes Public Policy Fellowship

Published on Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Livida Privado of Greer has completed the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s (CCHI) Public Policy Fellowship Program in Washington, D.C. Privado, a graduate of Clemson University with a bachelor’s in political science and a CHCI – UPS Public Policy Fellow, spent nine months working in the nation’s capital, where she split her time between the American Bar Association’s Commission on Immigration and the office of Rep. James Clyburn.

CHCI offers talented Latinos, who have recently earned their undergraduate degrees, the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working in Congress, federal agencies, national non-profit organizations and corporate America. Weekly leadership training sessions that allowed them to meet with national leaders and engage in substantive policy discussions enhanced the fellows’ work experience.

“The CHCI Public Policy Fellowship has given me the opportunity to a better future by providing valuable work experience in D.C. while connecting me to other young leaders who want to make a difference at all levels of government,” Privado said.

CHCI’s Public Policy Fellowship Program provides participants with round-trip transportation to and from Washington and a monthly stipend of $2,400 to help cover housing and local expenses.
