Embassy & Diplomatic Scholars Program at the Washington Internship Institute
The Washington Internship Institute (WII) offers internship opportunities in domestic and foreign government agencies in Washington, DC each fall, spring, and summer semester. Recent placements include: an international development internship at the Citizens Network for Foreign Affairs, a policy internship at the State Department NATO office, and internships at the Embassy of Mexico and Embassy of France. Although many internships are with international organizations, all students intern in Washington, DC.
During your internship, you have an opportunity to interact with experts and professionals. As a WII intern, you become an active member of the office staff with real responsibilities. You can expect to fully participate in office life, attending meetings and special events, performing research, writing reports, preparing briefings, etc.
Interns spend four days a week at the internship site and one day a week in classes that bridge theory and practice. Psi Chi members are eligible for a $500 merit-based scholarship that is cosponsored by the Association of College Honor Societies and WII. The application deadline for the spring semester is December 1, but applying earlier ensures the greatest range of placement options.
