**NEW THIS YEAR: There will be a winter application cycle for the 2020 DC Summer Institutes running December 2, 2019 through January 6, 2020. Students with outstanding applications will be asked to participate in a virtual interview during the week of January 13. Please note that this occurs BEFORE classes resume for the Spring semester.


DCSI fellows earn 7 W&M credits through this academic program, composed of an accelerated course that involves networking with experts and alums through guest lectures and site visits—and working in a guaranteed internship at a related DC institution.

Institute topics are decided by the Departments and Schools that offer them.  It is possible that they will change or that other topics will be offered in addition to these in future summers.
