The Washington Center Internships Program

The University of Memphis has established a partnership with The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars that provides a unique opportunity for students to work and study in our nation's capital. Interns pay UofM tuition and fees, and also receive about $6,000 in financial assistance from the Tennessee Board of Regents toward The Washington Center's fees, tuition, housing, and transportation. All UofM financial aid arrangements (Hope Scholarship, University scholarships, etc.) remain in effect.
