MIW Student Maggie Campbell with friends by the Washington Monument in 2015
Although the MIW program is for juniors and seniors, entering freshmen are encouraged to build a roadmap of their four years and consider how a semester in Washington might support their educational and career aspirations. As an epicenter of politics and culture, there is something for students in every discipline in the capital.
Applications for the program are reviewed semi-annually, in October and March. Forms and application deadlines are available on this site.
Students may apply up to two terms in advance for their Washington semester. Early admission is highly recommended for students who want internships requiring security clearance (CIA, FBI, DOJ, others), where internships are secured 6 months in advance.
