Congressional Internship Program for Young Muslim Leaders (CIPYML)Batch 7

Growth Equity in Mindanao a program under USAID has announced that is now ready to accept applicants for the CIPYML Batch 7. My dear friend Faida Latip, a CIPYML Batch 4 Alumni, informed me of this and asked if I can help dessiminate information so that other young Muslims in different areas of Mindanao will be aware that such program is available.


GEM assists governments in the ARMM to address key governance issues, including: relations with the national government; relations with donors; infrastructure planning and implementation; procurement procedures and practices; personnel management procedures.

GEM administers a “Congressional Internship” Program which, each year, will provide some 50 young professionals from the ARMM and neighboring conflict-affected areas, with the opportunity to spend four months working in the Philippine House of Representatives on legislative and policy matters.

The participants shall be selected based on their academic performance, community involvement and leadership abilities, knowledge of policy and other development issues, reputation in their respective communities, and potential contribution to the development of Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and other conflict affected areas of Mindanao (CAAM).
