SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS
THE WASHINGTON CENTER FOR INTERNSHIPS AND ACADEMIC SEMINARS
Final Deadline is December 9, 2009
This January, The Washington Center will offer their 2010 edition of Inside Washington, a special academic seminar focusing on the topics, "Congress and the Obama Presidency" (week one – January 3-8) and "Politics and the Media" (week two – January 10-15). They will also offer offering the Camp David III academic seminar (January 3-16), which includes a simulation of the Middle East peace process. This limited enrollment seminar (45 students) includes visits to Middle Eastern embassies, a visit to a Moroccan restaurant, and role playing, plus an exceptional lineup of speakers. This is an intense learning experience for those interested in the topic. Both programs are designed for students to attend either one week or two weeks. Because Pi Gamma Mu is affiliated with the Association of College Honor Societies, The Washington Center will take $150 off the cost of the program.
A faculty member can offer the Inside Washington program as a course. If a faculty member organizes a group of at least ten students, the faculty member will be hired to be a Faculty Leader, in charge of his/her own students and have full access to all program activities. The school also receives the equivalent of one free scholarship for every 10 students. Housing is provided free of charge to the faculty member as well as a modest stipend. The group has the option of coming for the full two-week program or just one week. For more information about being a faculty leader, please email them at [email protected]. For Camp David III, faculty who bring at least 10 students can accompany their students free of charge and receive free housing.
