Now Taking Nominations for Washington, DC Leadership Experience

Now taking nominations for exceptional students!

Washington, DC Leadership Experience Overview

University Advancement, in partnership with Career Services, is offering a full scholarship for a ten day non-credit internship in Washington, DC in June for three or four praiseworthy students of CWU. This program includes airfare, lodging, and a small stipend. Exemplary students may be nominated by peers, faculty and staff.

This non-credit opportunity is hosted by CWU Foundation board member Carol Smoots, a lawyer and Central alum who resides in DC. Participants will be guests of the Smoots’ and will be provided a chance to meet with congressional representatives, CWU alumni, and others in positions of leadership. Sightseeing will also take place, as well as free time for independent exploration of the city. The experience emphasizes leadership development.

Previous students have described this trip as “life changing,” and often return with a broad new understanding of potential achievement in both life and career goals. The trip itself is not limited to a specific department of study, but the selection committee will work to tailor the chosen candidates’ itinerary to include experiences within their scope of interest.

You may access the nomination form here.
