The UCDC Summer Internship Program (UCDC) sends 40 to 50 outstanding undergraduate students to live and intern in Washington, D.C. for 10 weeks each summer. Students have the opportunity to live and take classes (optional) at the UC Washington Center in the heart of DC, just blocks from the White House. UCDC is a great opportunity for students to examine the behind-the-scenes activities that shape and implement our nation’s future course.
Admitted students work closely with program staff to develop competitive application materials, apply to internship positions, interview successfully, and secure meaningful internships. Students from ALL majors are encouraged to apply as Washington, D.C. offers numerous internship opportunities in various industries.

There are also internships available during Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters through the UCDC Academic Internship Program. During the academic year, you must enroll in courses and your financial aid applies.
