Now in its 30th year, The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars (TWC) is an educational nonprofit organization serving hundreds of colleges and universities in the U.S. and other countries by providing selected students challenging opportunities to work and learn in Washington, D.C. for academic credit. The Postgraduate Professional Development Program (PPDP) extends the benefits of the full-time internship concept to individuals who have already completed their undergraduate education.
This program enables people who do not need to earn academic credit the opportunity to experience a full-time internship in an area of their interest, helping them to learn more about a field or solidify career or graduate-school plans. PPDP participants must have finished their bachelor’s degrees within the previous 18 months or be enrolled in a graduate program. The program runs for 15 weeks in the fall and spring and 10 weeks in the summer. The work component occupies four-and-one-half days per week, allowing time to audit a Washington Center course if desired.
The Postgraduate Professional Development Program applicants must have received their most recent college degree within 18 months of the start of the program or be currently enrolled in graduate school . They do not receive academic credit and do not need liaison or sponsor approval.
Applicants attending law school must be currently registered first-year students at an accredited school of law. They do not receive academic credit and do not need liaison or sponsor approval. Law students submitting an online application must submit, via mail, an original plus TWO copies of a legal writing sample, in addition to the other components that comprise the online application.
