William & Mary Students: Living, Studying, and Available to YOU in DC

Our Programs

The William & Mary Washington Office runs credit-bearing programs throughout the year that offer select W&M students an opportunity to combine intensive classroom study about a specific topic with related hands-on work at one of DC’s many institutions.

Our programs give employers the benefit of hiring hard working, high achieving interns with W&M administrators as a contact throughout the internship.

Our interns are available throughout the year:

  • Spring: January – April
  • Summer: June – August
  • Fall: August – November

The Benefit to Employers
  • Students are admitted to our programs 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.
