The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars

Monmouth University is affiliated with the Washington Center, where students have the opportunity to do an internship in Washington, D.C. during either the fall, spring, or summer terms.  Participants in the program work 4 ½ days per week in a professional setting, enroll in an academic course, and participate in the Washington Forum, a public policy lecture series.

Tuition for the program is billed and payable each semester to Monmouth University and includes the Washington Center program fee, while the housing fee is billed by and payable to the Washington Center.  Refer to the University’s website for current year tuition rates and to the Washington Center website for housing costs.

Financial aid can be used for tuition, fees, room, meals, transportation, and personal expenses. If you are otherwise eligible, you may receive federal and state grants and loans, most Monmouth University grants and scholarships, and private alternative loans to pay your Washington Center costs; athletic funding and tuition remission may not be used for off-campus study.  Additionally, the Washington Center itself offers financial assistance.  Visit their website for scholarship information and applications
