We are now accepting applications for our summer 2017 and fall 2017 UW-Madison in DC programs. (Deadline is Sept. 30.) Wisconsin in Washington is open to undergraduates from all majors, and is administered jointly by Political Science and International Academic Programs. Please helps us get the word out to your students. Program flyer is also attached.
The ‘Wisconsin in Washington’ DC program harnesses the many opportunities found in our Nation’s Capital for UW-Madison undergraduates in a wide variety of colleges and majors.
With the help of our Political Science advisers, our DC-based faculty program manager and our UW/DC Badger alumni network, students pursue DC internships in a variety of fields including government/politics, international affairs, communications, journalism, law, NGOs and nonprofits, history, the arts, corporate management, agricultural and life sciences, environment, lobbying, PR/advertising, think tanks/applied research, education, and more. The program offers students a full-credit option in fall and spring (12 UW credits including a combination of internship, core DC program seminar, and electives taught by UW appointed faculty) and a 3-credit program in the summer. Admitted students stay in university-arranged, apartment housing located in the heart of Capitol Hill.
Scholarships available for qualified students.
