The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars (The Washington Center) has created a new internship program for students interested in Asia and the Pacific Rim. Through the Asia Pacific Internship Program, students spend a semester or summer in Washington, DC working in an internship at an Asia related organization or government agency. In addition, students will participate in coursework and interact with international leaders through programs such as a congressional breakfast series, presidential lecture series and visits to Asian embassies and US government offices.
To obtain more information and an application for this and other programs offered by The Washington Center, please visit The Washington Center's website listed below or phone. Information is also available at our booths at the AAS meetings in NYC March 28-30 (Lower Level Rhinelander Gallery Booth 2011C) and at the ASIANetwork Conference at Furman University in South Carolina.
The Asia Pacific Internship Program is designed to benefit students of all majors regardless of their previous level of knowledge about Asia. The Program can serve as an introduction to the region, or allow students with substantial experience in the region an opportunity to explore career options with the US government, international organizations and private institutions and firms.
Washington, DC is an excellent location for students to begin or enhance their studies of the Asia Pacific region because it is the center of US policymaking and the home of many international organizations working with Asia. Participation in the Asia-Pacific Leaders Program allows students to gain an understanding of how US policy toward Asia is formulated and to meet the political, business and cultural leaders shaping US relations with the Asia-Pacific region.
Through the Asia Pacific Internship Program, students can earn a semester or quarter's worth of credits at their home institution. In addition to their internship and seminar activities, students participate in coursework offered by The Washington Center focusing on US-Asian relations or other fields of interest. Opportunities for Asian language study are also available. The Washington Center arranges housing and orientation, and monitors internship placements to ensure a quality academic experience for each student.
Financial aid for students may be available from a variety of sources including The Washington Center, your home college/university and state legislative funds. Special opportunities are available for Asian American students through The Washington Center's Diversity in Government Program. Over 200 colleges and universities in the US and abroad have agreements with The Washington Center to facilitate the transfer of credit and financial aid. Please contact The Washington Center or visit the website for more details.
The Washington Center has 28 years of experience providing quality internship and educational programs in Washington DC. Each year The Washington Center hosts over 1500 students from US and international colleges and universities, and The Washington Center has a network of over 30,000 alumni.
