DC Internships

With well-over half a million people living in the nation’s Capital, Washington DC is one of the most diverse, happening cities in the country and stands as the political mecca of the free world; a place where history is made every day. Each semester, Utah Valley University sends a group of students to Washington, DC for the experience of a lifetime. While interning, our students have the opportunity to meet with congressmen and women, dignitaries, philanthropists, experts, corporate leaders, and activists from around the globe. An internship in DC is a great way to build your resume, expand your network with solid contacts, and gain the necessary knowledge and skills that will help jump start your career!
