Wellesley in Washington Summer Internship Program

Capitol Building The Wellesley College Washington Internship Program provides an opportunity for a funded summer internship in Washington DC.

Students can seek placements from a wide array of government offices, public- interest groups, media and cultural institutions, scientific and medical institutes, and research groups in Washington, DC. Interns - who must be in their junior year- are selected without regard to academic major.

Each intern receives a stipend to help defray living expenses. Housing is also provided for students; all participating interns must live in the housing arranged for them. Interns are required to participate in weekly seminars and other Program activities during the summer. Contacts with Wellesley alumnae are an important part of the Program and each intern will be assigned a mentor from the Washington Wellesley Club. Veteran interns participate in the orientation of new interns the following year.
