A variety of social activities complement the experience so students can make the most of their time in the nation’s capital. Secure, convenient, and affordable housing options near a Washington Metro station are also available.


The Internship


Pre-arranged Placements: The Osgood Center arranges placements for you based on your application and personal contact regarding your interests and preferences. Some placements, such as the White House, State Department, and Capitol Hill offices may have earlier deadlines, so please let us know your interest well in advance so we can advise you of the need to plan and apply early. Also, if the deadline has passed, we may have some flexibility to accept additional applications depending upon your placement interests.


Potential Placements: There are literally thousands of internships available in Washington at any time. The challenge is to find the right one for you. That’s what we do. The Osgood Center is experienced at finding suitable placements, but whether your internship is a successful one or not depends upon what you would like to do at your internship. That is why it is important for you to speak to us to discuss your interests, goals, and skills as well as your aspirations. Think about the kind of environment you would like to work in and whether you might prefer being part of a team in a public policy advocacy group, a consulting business, or one of hundreds of government agencies in the city. Once you express your preferences, we’ll go to work on your behalf.
