The Washington Center is the bridge between higher education and professional careers—leveraging all of what Washington, D.C. has to offer to provide dynamic, experiential learning opportunities to empower and motivate young people to become engaged global citizens.
a TWC internship includes a ~32-hour internship with a partnered organization or company, Professional Development programming, and an academic course that meets weekly on a topic of the student's interest.
The Washington Center Academic Internship is a life-changing experience offered during the spring, summer, and fall semesters, and Career Development is here to provide both extensive support with your application as well as financial assistance to cover 100% of the program cost, tuition/fees, housing, and a $1000 travel/living stipend.
To apply for a TWC internship, you'll need to submit your unofficial transcripts, a one-page resume, a 450-750 word writing sample, and a 100-word statement of professional interest.
