The Georgia Tech DC Internship Program is looking for fall interns. Two students will be selected to receive a $7,500 stipend to cover the cost of expenses (housing, transportation, and living expenses) while serving in a full-time capacity working as interns in Washington, DC. This program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students of all majors.
Students will be required to find their own internship, with the assistance of the Division of Professional Practice (DoPP) and the Office of Government and Community Relations. Internships must be with members of Congress, Congressional Committees or executive branch offices.
During the course of the internship, students will work full-time in offices in and around Washington, DC for 16 weeks. To earn course credit, interns will also be required to complete weekly journals and must be available to outreach to other GT students once they return to campus.
