Are you interested in working for the government, a non-profit or an innovative business in our nation's capital? Have you always wanted to see how the federal government will impact you as a future business leader? If you've answered yes to any of these questions you should consider an internship in Washington, D.C. during Spring 2020.
The Bauer in DC Fellowship Program is an academic and professional experience in Washington, D.C. Participating students will intern at least 32 hours per week, for 12-14 weeks, in our nation’s capital, and may have the opportunity to earn academic credit. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to gain valuable work experience, earn academic credit and live in our nation’s capital.
Monday, January 6, 2020 through Saturday, April 25, 2020. These dates are subject to change and will be confirmed closer to January 2020.
Participants can apply for internships at the organization of their choosing. Bauer staff will assist you in your internship search to ensure that you find a substantive opportunity prior to arriving in Washington, D.C.
You may earn up to 9 hours of academic credit for the internship experience. Once students are selected for this program, they will be required to meet with Colleen Davies, email@example.com, and their academic advisor to determine exactly how the credit will be applied towards their degree.
The Bauer College of Business will pay for housing expenses for each participant for the duration of the internship. Each student will be required to pay for tuition for any classes in which they enroll, their round-trip flight to Washington, D.C., and their living expenses for the 3.5 months they are in Washington, DC, which is estimated to be approximately $8,200 (this estimate is based on a student taking 9 hours of credit). Also you must have valid health insurance in order to participate in this program.
In order to apply you must have:
-Completed 60 hours and be eligible to file a degree plan at the close of the Fall 2019 semester
-3.0 GPA or better
-Work experience of some kind
