The Benefit to Employers
  • Students are admitted to a W&M Study in DC experience through a rigorous application and interview process. They are some of the best students William & Mary has to offer.
  • Whether paid or unpaid, our students are available 30-40 hours a week to work as a part of your staff.
  • Students are in DC to study a specific topic that relates to your organization. They are likely to settle in DC and enter your field upon graduation – giving you the first shot at hiring some of the nation’s best and brightest.
  • W&M administrators work to ensure that you and your intern have a mutually beneficial experience. Our staff will meet with you before, during and after the semester to discuss and evaluate the student and his/her internship experience.
