2011 UW-Madison Washington D.C. Summer Program participants
Each summer, the Political Science Department sends a select group of undergraduates to Washington D.C. for eight intensive weeks where they intern in offices all around the city during the day and attend classes in the evenings for university credit.
The program is a unique opportunity for students interested in studying first hand the workings of Washington, D.C. or considering a future career in government.
of four credits are available for participation in the program
(one credit for a preparatory course to be taken in the spring
prior to the start of the program and three credits are awarded
for coursework done during the summer session in Washington D.C.).
A small number of scholarship are also available to help students with financial needs to participate in the program.
Application deadline: Monday, 31 October, 2012.
Please write or contact the Political Science Career/Intern Coordinator, Dave Nelson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about the program.
