Washington Semester Program
Upcoming Information Sessions
WSP and Friedman Fellowship Application Deadline (for Spring 2011): September 23, 2010
From embassy headquarters to non-governmental organizations, from think tanks to lobby groups and advocacy organizations, and from consulting firms to media outlets, Washington, D.C., is both the capital of the United States and a focal point for many of the world’s international and public policy activities. Undergraduates from any course of study who would value first-hand policy experience are invited to apply to Carnegie Mellon University’s Washington Semester Program, which is sponsored by the university’s Center for International Relations and Politics. Through this semester-long program, students live, work, and study in Washington, D.C., coming into direct contact with political, business, and community leaders and learning about the most pressing policy issues of the day. The Center for International Relations and Politics will sponsor policy events and forums in Washington for CMU students participating in the program to further enrich their Washington experience and to help them better understand how Washington functions as a hub of international and public policy decision making.
Carnegie Mellon students accepted to WSP are eligible to apply for Friedman Fellowships, which help defray the costs of a semester in Washington.
