Welcome to UCA’s resource page for The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars. The University has a special affiliation with The Washington Center. If you are interested in an internship in DC for a semester but need to continue to make degree progress with a full load of courses, The Washington Center is for you! The Center offers academic seminars so you can continue course work while you complete your internship.
Now is the time to apply for a Summer 2017 internship in D.C.
The State of Arkansas provides a limited number of $6000 scholarships to The Washington Center. These scholarships make it possible for a student to attend The Washington Center for a semester for about the same cost as a semester at UCA. In addition, the Washington is offering another $1000 scholarship, and they are waiving the application fee with a special code; see Dr. Mehl for the code.
There are also scholarships available from The Washington Center for students with disabilities: Leadership Initiative for Students with Disabilities available at this link.
Students should contact UCA’s liaison to the Washington Center, before preparing their applications.
