Truman in Washington Program Offers Several Summer 2009 Internship Opportunities

The Washington Center (TWC) for Internships and Academic Seminars is offering several internship opportunities for the summer of 2009.

Students are encouraged to apply for the Summer 2009 Department of Defense (DoD) Internship Program as well as summer internships in Washington, D.C., London, Oxford, Quebec City or Sydney. To be eligible for any of the internships applicants must be a junior or senior with a GPA of at least 3.0. All majors are welcome for the internships in Washington, D.C., or abroad, while business, economics, computer science and mathematics/statistics majors are encouraged to apply for the DoD internship program.

The DoD internship program is a highly competitive, full-time internship program. Students will receive a weekly stipend over the 10-week summer term. If students choose to receive academic credit through Truman, they are required to complete additional academic requirements. The deadline for the DoD internship application is Jan. 15.

For the internships in Washington, D.C., and abroad, a pre-application process is conducted at Truman and the deadline for submitting application forms and letters of recommendation is Jan. 23. If the Truman advisory board determines the applicant eligible to participate in the program, a completed application must be submitted to TWC by Feb. 2 to ensure the participant is able to compete for financial assistance from TWC.

To begin the application process, students should contact Diane Johnson at or 785.7852 before Dec. 12 for the DoD internship and before Jan. 15 for the Washington, D.C., and abroad internships.

The Truman in Washington Program offers assistance to all students who wish to pursue non-credit opportunities in Washington, D.C.
