Every summer, students from the University of Nebraska arrive in Washington, D.C. to start their summer internships. To encourage their success, we've launched the NU Washington, D.C. Professional Enrichment Academy—a free, value-added program that meets once a week in the evening and connects students with prominent DC alumni and each other. Guest speakers cover topics such as "Policymaking in Congress" and "The News Media in American Democracy."
Through the program, students will benefit from thoughtful mentoring and programming, expand their network, and learn to transition from college into their professional careers. All current University of Nebraska students interning in Washington, D.C. during the summer are eligible, including students from all four campuses and from any major or discipline. You can also register to receive academic credit for participating.
The 2020 D.C. Professional Enrichment Academy is taking applications now! The deadline for priority consideration is Feb. 1, 2020 and the final deadline is April 15, 2020.
Upcoming Information Sessions:
- Nov. 14, 2019: Milo Bail 224 at Noon
- Nov. 18, 2019: Milo Bail 220 at Noon
