William & Mary

The W&M Washington Intern Fund

Help W&M students live and work in DC

Graduating with internship experience is now essential as students face tough competition for employment.  An internship, especially one in the DC area, exposes William & Mary students to the dynamic governmental, business, cultural, and non-profit, and social institutions of the region, helps integrate them into DC’s vibrant William & Mary alumni network, and allows them to begin building their career paths in the “real world.” 

Unfortunately, we’re seeing these incredible opportunities denied to an increasing number of the William & Mary students who most need them — students who cannot afford to work at unpaid or low paid internships.  

Accordingly, the W&M Washington Intern Fund provides grants to these students.
