D.C. Summer Internship Program Deadline
The Georgia Tech Summer in D.C. Internship Program is looking for interns beginning Summer 2011. Approximately five students from across the campus will be selected to each receive a $5,000 stipend to cover expenses (housing, transportation and living expenses) while serving in a full-time capacity as an intern in Washington, D.C. This program is open to both undergraduate and graduate students of all majors.
Students will be required to secure their own internship with the assistance of the Division of Professional Practice (DoPP) and the Office of Government and Community Relations. Internships can include, but are not limited to, jobs with members of Congress, Congressional Committees, executive branch offices or not-for-profit organizations.
During the course of the internship, students will work full-time in offices in and around Washington, D.C., for approximately 10 weeks. To earn course credit, interns will also be required to complete weekly journals and must be available to promote the internship program to other GT students once they return to campus.
Should you be a D.C. intern? Yes, if:
- you are a Georgia Tech student who is curious about how the federal government really works — how it impacts your life, even here in Georgia or anywhere in the country.
- you want to help shape the nation’s future — in politics, science, technology, business, law, media, education, medicine, or beyond.
- you would like to enhance your education by obtaining the experience and contacts for future job opportunities.
Are there other requirements? Yes:
- You must register with DoPP to receive audit credit for the internship. (If you want to receive academic credit you must contact your department. Please note that there is a cost per credit hour associated with receiving academic credit.)
- You must be in good disciplinary standing.
- You must have taken one of the following courses prior to applying for program: HIST 2111, 2112, POL 1101, INTA 1200, PUBP 3000 or its equivalent.
Selection is based on potential for leadership as indicated by grades, work experiences, extracurricular ac tivities, interests, and maturity. You will be asked to furnish a transcript and resume, as well as references from people who have taught you or worked with you.
Deadline for summer 2011 internships is April 15.
