Uni-Capitol Washington Internship Programme
The Uni-Capitol Washington Internship Programme (UCWIP) offers Australian students from Universities an opportunity to intern in a range of US congressional offices for eight weeks during January - February each year.
Students enrolled in the Masters or Masters of Letters program with the United States Studies Centre are eligible to apply. Students not completing the Masters program are required to be assessed in order to apply.
UCWIP is a competitive program seeking bright, articulate students who can:
- serve as ambassadors for Australia;
- understand and appreciate the American political system; and
- benefit from the experience academically, professional and personally.
UCWIP interns gain a unique perspective and access to the US political system and institutions. Placements are offered in both Democratic and Republican offices; personal offices and Committee staffs in the House and the Senate.
UCWIP was created in 1999 in Washington, DC, by Eric K. Federing. Federing was a former senior congressional advisor for twelve years, serving as communications director for Representative Norm Mineta of California, the House Transportation Committee and Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut.
Applications for 2013 internships have now closed.
