The 7th Project Association seeks to partner
with the community to provide assistance with
educational opportunities, nutritional needs,
economic development, and basic quality of life
improvements for the people of Alabama’s
7th Congressional District.
The 7th Project Association is incorporated in the State of Alabama as an association. We are a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The 7th Project Association is governed by a Board of Directors composed of recognized community leaders and funded by annual gifts of association membership dues.
Our flagship program provides Congressional Internship opportunities in the Washington and District offices of Congresswoman Terri A. Sewell for students with high academic achievement and demonstrated financial need.
I'm proud to partner with The 7th Project to give young
people the opportunity to see their government in action and serve their fellow citizens.
Congresswoman Terri Sewell
As a political science graduate, an internship in Washington, D.C. is one of the most desired opportunities a student can possess. The opportunity provided by the 7th Project Association has changed my outlook on life as well as the world around me. The experience itself has led to many career options within my field. Throughout college I often wondered what was my purpose and why did I choose to attend Troy University. As a first generation college student and the daughter of a single parent, I faced many challenges, but I looked to women like Congresswoman Sewell for motivation and morale. I understood that my goals were possible even after many failures. A few weeks before graduation, I felt like everything was a total disaster. I did not have any major future plans, I wrecked my only functioning vehicle, and I was about to become a college graduate. Once I received the phone call confirming my selection as a participant of the Washington, D.C. internship position, I was delighted. Unfortunately, the joy was short lived. I did not have any idea how would I travel to D.C., where would I live, and how would I provide for myself. The situation turned gloomy in a matter of moments. To my surprise, the 7th Project Association held the golden ticket to a great opportunity.
