The Washington Center (TWC) runs an internship program in Washington, D.C., that is open to all UW undergraduates (all majors welcome) and provides comprehensive service, including internship placement and housing. Placements include government agencies, corporations, nonprofits, museums, arts organizations, and international organizations.
Hundreds of UW students have participated in this program since UW’s affiliation in 1977, and many made connections that led to post-degree employment.

At the informational meetings, a Washington Center representative and I will discuss the structure of the program, scholarships, the application process, and UW credit.

The program is affordable for many students. UW WA State residents receive a $2500 scholarship that makes the cost of attending the program comparable to participating in many study abroad programs. UW international students and residents of other states receive a $1000 scholarship and may pay less for this program than the estimated cost of attending UW for a quarter. Additional scholarships may be available for students interested in the autumn or spring semester programs.

TWC’s facilities are accessible to students who have disabilities. In addition, their Disability Services Coordinator will assist with accommodation at the internship and programming sites.

These are the upcoming application deadlines (for a full list of organizations that have earlier deadlines see http://www.twc.edu/node/11029): Autumn 2018 (15 weeks, Aug-Dec): Regular: May 16
Spring 2019 (15 weeks, Jan-May): Priority*: Oct 17, Regular: Nov 14 Summer 2019 (10 weeks, Jun-Aug), Priority*: Feb 20, Regular: Mar 13 * Priority deadline is for scholarships above the minimum guaranteed

Regardless of your major, there is an internship in D.C. for you! Whether you want to do an internship this year or in three years, come to an information session to learn more.

Spring 2018 and Summer 2018 Internships at UW Fiddleheads Forest School

Join Seattle’s Pioneering Outdoor Preschool
at the University of Washington

Fiddleheads Forest School was the very first entirely outdoor preschool in Seattle. We pioneered the urban outdoor preschool model in the United States and helped develop the first legislation to license outdoor preschools in North America. Today the school is nationally respected as a standard-bearer in the field of early childhood nature-based education, and is committed to supporting the field as a whole through education, outreach, and leadership.

Our competitive volunteer & internship program (only a 10 minute bike ride away from campus) accepts over 30 students annually, and is designed to support and nurture future leaders in fields as diverse as education, psychology, health, environmental studies, and more.

A classroom that grows with its students

Fiddleheads grows and changes with each passing year, and our internships allows for volunteers to participate in the creation and implementation of a uniquely dynamic, high-quality preschool experience in an extraordinary environment. Interns gain valuable experience in early childhood development as well as nature-based education while working closely with teachers to create and lead fun, age appropriate, educational activities.

After a lifetime of confined and structured classrooms, I was utterly and completely stunned by the outdoor model that Fiddleheads provided…I saw students explore, discover, learn, and play in an environment ripe with learning opportunities. Whether we were telling stories on the nurse log, observing baby owls, or examining frozen ponds, Fiddleheads found opportunities for growth in every circumstance. The students took their education into their own hands. At Fiddleheads, I was graced with lessons in compassion, leadership, and the importance of play within a classroom. As I make the transition into a teacher career, I’ve learned to place a great emphasis in student engagement.

– Minh Tran, Forest School Intern

A commitment to Equity and Diversity

Fiddleheads is deeply committed to fostering equity and diversity in the field of nature-based early childhood education. In addition to providing scholarships to 10% of our incoming class, we helped start a national dialogue about equity when we chaired and hosted last year’s National Nature Preschool Conference on Equity and Cultural Responsiveness. We believe that nature-based education must be culturally responsive education, and are on a continuing journey to refine our approach through education and reflection and to embody principles of anti-bias and cultural responsiveness in our work.

Twenty years old, and I was still afraid of getting dirty. These kids had not yet turned five, and they had no inhibitions… just rolling around in dirt, climbing nurse logs, and eating licorice ferns. I would never have done any of these things had it not been for the kids showing me the way. I never imagined it would be possible to have a school outside, all year round.

– Angela Feng, Forest School Intern

A Specialized Approach

Our volunteers build meaningful connections with students and teachers while developing leadership skills in early childhood and nature-based education. We work closely with interns and volunteers to develop positions that suit your unique needs and interests.

Fiddleheads offers multiple options for volunteering that fit a range of schedules. Commit to one day (or more) per week for the duration of a quarter for either our morning (9am-1pm) or afternoon class (2pm-4pm).

Graduate Student Mentorship Opportunity for Undergrads in SEFS, POE, SAFS

American Fisheries Society-UW Student Subunit would like to foster relationships between graduate and undergraduate students in the college of the environment and students interested in environmental sciences. The mentorship program is a great way to help undergraduates begin to get involved with research, learn about graduate school, and begin to make connections with peers. Depending on the needs of the mentor and mentee, you can meet as often as once a week or once a quarter. AFSUW will host a mentorship mixer and graduate student panel in Winter quarter to help you meet mentors/mentees and kick off your relationship with free pizza!

We have one mentor with TWO mentee spots still available!

Please email grace1rw@uw.edu or afsuw@uw.edu to sign up for one of the remaining mentee spots with this amazing mentor, a graduate student who started out as an undergrad here in SEFS! His mentor bio is below:

Hi! My name is Davey, and I am a 2nd year MS student in the Schindler Lab. I am originally from California, spent most of my childhood in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, and have been in Seattle for the past 10 years. I completed my undergraduate degree in the UW School of Environmental and Forest Sciences (SEFS) with a focus on streamside studies. My research interests include geospatial analysis coupled with biogeochemistry to understand how carbon and nutrients move across the landscape via waterways and soil-water interactions. My background spans forestry, river and floodplain management, and GIS. My current research uses spatial stream network modeling to map the distribution of dissolved organic carbon
and nutrients in the Koyukuk and Kuskokwim rivers of Alaska. I don’t know much about fish, other than how delicious they are. I DO know about the Seattle area, UW coursework and extracurricular opportunities, and making yourself a marketable graduate in the environmental sciences.
