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.

If you can’t make it, contact me, Meera Roy, for an appointment (available online at https://depts.washington.edu/polsadvc/signup.php — you can change the week at the top of the screen–or you can email me for an appointment time).
