Current Status for Spring 2021

The DC Internship Program will run online internships and classes for the Spring 2021 semester. The DC program will be working with organizations to find internship placements that can be completed remotely. For participants that already have internship placements, we will reach out to that organization to determine if it can be switched to a remote opportunity (if it isn’t remote already).Close
