Michigan In Washington
Fall 2020 / Winter 2021
Application Deadline: Friday, February 14, 2020
The Michigan in Washington program is accepting applications for Fall 2020 and early admission to Winter 2021. The deadline is February 14th and applications are available on M-Compass. English students are strongly encouraged to apply. Some examples of where English majors have interned: U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, Asian American Justice Center, Center for American Progress, Meet the Press, Quicken Loans Government Relations, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, National Women’s Law Center, Washington City Paper, Association of American Universities and the Department of Education, just to name a few!
What is Michigan in Washington:
The MIW program offers an opportunity each year for 45-50 undergraduates from any major to spend a semester (Fall or Winter) in Washington D.C. Students combine coursework with an internship that reflects their particular area of interest. The semester in Washington is action packed. Students work four days a week, attend an elective one evening a week, a research course on Friday mornings, and explore the city on weekends. Most leave Washington longing to return.
Students are free to pursue internships of their own choosing. They are coached in internship searching strategies as part of a professional development class that is taken the semester before going to D.C. This course also provides guidance with resumes and cover letters, as well as learning how to network.
Who Should Apply:
MIW is open to Juniors and Seniors of all majors. If you are interested in learning outside of a typical academic setting, while experiencing the vibrant city life of Washington, D.C., we strongly encourage you to apply. We seek students who are serious about exploring the reach of their academic skills, and we work to help students find fulfilling and cutting-edge internships in their field of choice.
FUNDING IS AVAILABLE. We have recently established a new Opportunity Fund with funding up to $5000! This scholarship fund will provide need-based support to students for whom a semester in Washington D.C. represents an exceptional opportunity to advance their professional goals. Preference will be given to students with a record of superior academic achievement and who are the first in their families to attend college, who have experienced hardship as a result of family economic circumstances, or who come from underrepresented educational or geographical backgrounds, such as public high schools in rural or urban areas.
