2017 SCIP (Summer College Internship Program)

The Korean American Coalition's (KAC) Summer College Internship Program (SCIP) is designed to provide personal and professional development opportunities to highly qualified Korean American college students, and to encourage them to take on future leadership roles in the Korean American community.

The program places participants in sponsor offices four days a week. Applicants will be able to rank their interest in four fields - Government/Political, Non-Profit, Corporate, and Media - and will be placed accordingly. Past internship placements have included positions at Samsung America, KTLA, FOX, KCBS, KNBC, an investment bank, Public Counsel Los Angeles, Chun-Ha Insurance Services, KoreAm Journal, Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, Center for the Pacific Asian Family, California Redevelopment Agency, and the offices of Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Barbara Boxer, Congressman Xavier Becerra, former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, State Treasurer John Chiang, and Orange County Supervisor Michelle Park Steele.

SCIP will begin at the KAC National College Leadership Conference, where participants hone their leadership skills by hearing from distinguished speakers, engaging in skill-building exercises, and learning about Korean American and Asian American history and identity.
