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

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

For 2012 the quarterly program cost is $5,850 and the housing cost is $3,790.

In addition, students pay UW registration, transportation, and personal expenses. Students may use financial aid for this program, UW tuition is charged at a reduced rate (because of this, the cost for nonresidents is comparable to a quarter at UW), and students may apply for scholarships (many UW students receive scholarships of $1-3000).

Upcoming application deadlines are:

Spring Quarter 2012, Regular: 1/13/12

Summer Quarter 2012, Competitive*: 2/17/12, Regular: 3/16/12

Autumn Quarter 2012, Early**: 1/20/12, Competitive*: 5/4/12, Regular: 6/15/12

Spring Quarter 2013, Early**: 5/21/12, Competitive*: 10/12/12, Regular:


* Deadline for eligibility for most scholarships (some scholarships available with regular deadline)

** See http://www.twc.edu/internships/dates-and-deadlines/early-deadlines for the list of organizations that require applications by the early deadline

Note that some established internship programs, such as the Congressional Black Caucus, may require earlier application submissions than the deadlines noted above.

Regardless of your major, there is an internship position for you. If you would like to know more, please come to an information session or contact me for an appointment. Information is also available online at www.twc.edu
