Defense Department Internships: Washington DC

U.S. Department of Defense/Washington Headquarters Services

Summer 2009 Internship Program

The Washington Center will offer an exciting program with the Department
of Defense once again this summer. Examples of work completed by past
interns include: analysis of major weapon systems, assisting with
military-to-military bilateral relations, updating and maintaining
departmental websites, providing support for departmental social
programs, statistical analysis of budget submissions, and reviewing
reports from Congress. This program gives students the opportunity to
develop skills, make professional contacts, build their resumes, and
explore future career opportunities within the Department of Defense.

Desired Majors: Engineering, Business/Economics, Computer Science/IT,
and Mathematics/Statistics majors are especially encouraged to apply.

Eligibility: Students must

-Be U.S. citizens.
-Have a 2.5 GPA or above.
-Be second-semester sophomores, juniors, seniors, or graduate students.
-Be enrolled in a degree-granting program; seniors entering a program in
the fall semester may also be considered.
-Get approval from their campus liaison (if they come from an affiliated
institution) or sponsor (if they come from an unaffiliated institution
and will complete the full, for-credit program).


Students selected for the Department of Defense Program will receive a
stipend to help offset their costs for the summer. Costs vary depending
upon whether or not students elect to live in TWC apartments and whether
or not they take the full program and earn academic credit at their home

Application Procedures:

To apply for the DoD internship program, students must submit our
Department of Defense application, available on our website at When prompted, students should select
Option 2 for the Government Scholarship Program, and then choose
Department of Defense from the drop-down menu. If students want to be
considered for other opportunities offered through TWC and complete the
full program, they should choose Option 1 and submit all components of
the regular application.
