UCDC Summer Internship Program

The UCDC Summer Internship Program sends 40 to 50 outstanding undergraduate students to live and intern in Washington, D.C. for 10 weeks each summer.  Students live and have the opportunity to take classes 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.  Washington, D.C. offers numerous internship opportunities in various industries, including non-profit organizations, governmental agencies, communications, and entertainment.  Therefore, students from all academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
