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 by and payable to Monmouth University, while the housing fee is billed by and payable to the Washington Center.  For the 2022-23 academic year, the tuition would be approximately $21,600 and housing costs are $6,570; summer tuition is approximately $12,500 and housing costs are approximately $5,000.

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
