Get career experience in the nation’s capital

As part of the Washington Leadership Program (WLP), you will intern a full workweek in Washington, D.C. Working as a professional, you will complete substantive and independent assignments while gaining valuable career experience in the public, private, or nonprofit sectors.

You will be responsible for researching and applying for your own internship, but the SPEA Career Development Office (CDO) is here to help. Use the CDO as a resource throughout your search and application process—we can help with any necessary security clearance paperwork, as well as answer questions you may have leading up to and during your Washington, D.C. internship.
