Truman in Washington Program Participants to Share Experiences

Students who participated in Truman’s annual Truman in Washington internship program during the spring and summer 2006 sessions will be honored at a welcome back reception and panel discussion from 5:30-7 p.m. Sept. 7 in the Student Union Building Lounge (201).

Washington interns will share their experiences during the panel discussion format, and then have the chance to answer questions on an individual basis. Parents, academic advisers and mentors of Washington interns will also be in attendance at the event to lend their thoughts on the experiences students’ receive during the Truman in Washington internship program.

Students interned with the following organizations within the Washington, D.C. area: Student Press Law Center, Fair Vote, Department of Defense/Air Force, Department of State/Latin America, Department of Treasury, Children’s Defense Fund, Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Agriculture, Southwest Utah Wilderness Alliance, Vote Against Violence, National Republican Congressional Committee, Center for Auto Safety and the National Alliance for Mental Illness.

Truman students interested in spending a summer in Washington, D.C., are given that opportunity through the Truman in Washington internship program affiliated with The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars (TWC).

To be eligible for the Truman in Washington Internship Program, students must have a 3.25 grade point average. Selection for the program is competitive, with the University sponsoring only five students during each summer semester to participate. The annual program awards participants credit hours for their internship work and an independent study project.
