The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars

Are you ready for an extraordinary academic experience - one that takes you, for a semester or summer term, out of the classroom and into the great laboratory of the working world?  Would you like to extend your studies, acquire experience, explore career directions, and develop your capabilities as a professional, leader, and citizen?  Over the last 33 years, the Washington Center has helped more than 40,000 students from more than 1,000 colleges and universities in the United States and abroad secure and successfully complete substantive, challenging and tailored internships in the for-profit, nonprofit, and governmental sectors.  It has provided them complementary academic coursework and brought them into contact with leaders at the national and international levels and in a wide array of fields.  These students have had extraordinary opportunities to strengthen their credentials for professional employment and for graduate or professional school.  Their experiences have put many of them on career trajectories far different from what they would have achieved without the program.    And quite simply, these students state that The Washington Center program has changed their lives.

Making all this possible is The Washington Center's position at the center of an impressive array of partnerships.  TWC works with thousands of placement sites - businesses, government agencies, international organizations, think tanks, advocacy groups and associations.  A truly integrative center, TWC serves the needs of students, universities, employers, donors and society alike - extending university curricula, expanding students' possibilities, and matching talent with opportunity to develop a stronger workforce and more engaged citizenry.

To take advantage of what The Washington Center and its many partners have available to you, the student here at ETSU, please contact The Honors College by calling 423-439-6076 or visiting The Honors College in Yoakley Hall where information brochures are available.  Visit The Washington Center's website at http://www.TWC.edu to learn more about the program.  The Honors College is here to assist you in this unique opportunity and has information concerning scholarships available from the Tennessee Board of Regents.  The report for the Spring 2008 Program is available here.
