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. Hundreds of UW students have participated in this

At the informational meetings, a Washington Center representative and I will
discuss the structure of the program, scholarships and the application process.
For 2013 the quarterly program cost is $5,995 and the housing cost is $3,985.
In addition, students pay for 15 UW credits, transportation, and personal
expenses. Students are eligible to use their financial aid for this program and
all UW students will receive scholarships of at least $2500 from TWC, which
brings the cost of attending close to the cost of a quarter at UW.
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.
