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 Washington, 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. By contributing to this fund, you will be giving our students the opportunity to experience all that DC has to offer.
