Washington Center Program to Have Informational Meetings

Students can apply for internships in the Washington Center Program for either the spring or summer semesters 2006. An application deadline of Sept. 15 has been set to meet the competitive deadline for spring 2006 and the security clearance deadline for summer 2006, according to campus liaison Diane Tobin Johnson, assistant professor of communication.

Students who wish to apply to intern in summer 2006 for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of State, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security must meet the security clearance deadline. Students who wish to compete for placements for spring 2006 with CNN, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, The White House, and certain government agencies must meet the competitive deadline to compete for stipends and awards in various leadership and government programs.

Students from any major can apply for this program and are invited to attend an informational meeting and/or application workshop. The application workshops will take place in a classroom with computer access so that students can actually work on their applications.

Informational meetings will take place at 7 p.m., Sept. 1, in Baldwin Hall 262 and at 7 p.m., Sept. 6, in Baldwin Hall 249. Application workshops will take place at 3:30 p.m., Sept. 9, in Baldwin Hall 351 and at 9 a.m., Sept. 13, in Baldwin Hall 351.
