The Washington Center (TWC) runs a full-time internship program in Washington, D.C., that is open to all UW students (all majors welcome) and provides comprehensive service, including internship placement and housing. Placements include government agencies, corporations, nonprofits, museums and international organizations, and associations,. 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 and the
application process.

For 2014 the quarterly program cost is $5,995 and the housing cost is $4,200 (there are additional charges for the semester program). In addition, students pay for 15 UW credits, transportation, and personal expenses. Students are eligible to use their financial aid for this program and many scholarships are available that often bring the cost of attending close to the cost of a quarter at UW. For Autumn 2014, TWC guarantees scholarships to all UW students, at least $2500 for residents of WA State and at least $1000 for non-residents (total cost is usually less than a quarter at UW for non-residents).

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

If you can’t make it, you can make an appointment to meet with me individually (to use our online system go to https://depts.washington.edu/polsadvc/signup.php; if none of the appointments with me work with your schedule, email me to find another time).
