For years, AFSA has partnered with the Thursday Luncheon Group (TLG) to support a deserving minority college student for a summer internship at the Department of State. Both organizations provide a stipend for the student for living expenses and other costs. TLG is an important organization whose mission is to increase the participation of African Americans and other minorities in the formulation, articulation and implementation of U.S. foreign policy.
The TLG president is Mr. Stacy Williams, who is the main point of contact for this internship program. The AFSA contact is Director of New Media Asgeir Sigfusson.
AFSA is very interested is supporting further internship opportunities for minority students across the foreign affairs agencies and we welcome interest from groups who wish to sponsor such a student for a welcoming, rewarding, and career-enhancing placement here in Washington. The TLG internship is run under the auspices of the Fund for American Diplomacy, AFSA's 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
