Ameritech, the Chicago-based telecommunications company with a major stake in Hungary’s telecom industry, has given $10,000 contribution to the Hungarian American Coalition. The donation will support The White House Internship Program by Ameritech, a project administered by the Coalition.
The White House Intern Program is a selective internship that enables students and college graduates to work full-time for one semester in various White House departments. The Hungarian American Coalition, whose Washington office is a mere two blocks from the White House, is one of several non-profit community groups which screens, nominates and finances candidates during their unpaid White House internship. In addition to their White House duties, the Coalition-sponsored interns also complete a project for the organization.
Since 1994, the Coalition has sponsored 5 young Hungarian-Americans in for the White House Intern Program. Through its sponsorship of talented Hungarian-American students, the Coalition allows service-minded future leaders to further their interest in public policy and Hungarian-American relations at the very center of American political life.
Ameritech’s generous sponsorship of The White House Internship Program by Ameritech will enable the Coalition to continue this important project. With its strong presence in Hungary and overall commitment to improving international communications, Ameritech has chosen the White House Internship project of the Hungarian American Coalition as a worthwhile partnership that serves the goals of both business and non-profit organizations that are working to improve Hungarian-American relations.
