Internships, make a difference 

There are a lot of reasons to consider a DC Internship.  In addition to the meaningful contributions you’ll make, an internship will help you make important business contacts and kick-start your future academic and professional career.  In fact, studies show students with internship experience go on to graduate at a higher rate, are more likely to find full-time employment and start their careers with higher wages.
