How to Apply:
Students must visit http://portal.e.twc.edu/ and then create a username and password. They should log in and start an internship application. When prompted, students should select option 2 for the Competitive Government Program. Students are encouraged to select more than one agency from among the choices listed, as similar positions may be available in multiple agencies.
When applying for the Competitive Government Program option, students must indicate that they intend to earn academic credit from their home institution for their participation. Securing academic credit is required to be considered for our Competitive Government Program during the fall.
There is no application fee for the Competitive Government Program. If a student is asked to submit a $60 application fee, he or she has selected the incorrect program option.
Students are encouraged to submit their applications before November 15, 2011; additional candidates will be considered after that date on a space-available basis.
Students will be notified of their placement status on a rolling basis. Students may expect to wait several weeks to a month before hearing about official offers or positions being filled. If they have already accepted another internship or job opportunity and would like to withdraw their application at any time, they are encouraged to notify The Washington Center.
