SBS in DC: Summer Internship

SBS in DC summer internship

The College of Social Behavioral Sciences has an amazing program that connects current UMass students with UMass alumni working in Washington, D.C., for an unforgettable summer internship. This year, "SBS in DC" students can land an internship in a congressional office, lobbying firm, or a non-profit advocacy organization. This program really hooks it up. SBS in D.C. covers housing costs at the Washington Intern Student Housing on Capitol Hill, and also offers one academic credit. Additional funding to cover transportation, food, metro card, and other expenses are available based on financial need.

I know the feeling, trust me, but it is important to push through and make sure you do well regardless of how bad a case of "senioritis" you've come down with.
