Welcome to Michigan in Washington
Each year, the Michigan in Washington Program admits 45-50 University of Michigan undergraduates from ALL MAJORS to spend a semester (Fall or Winter) in Washington, D.C. Students combine coursework with an internship to earn a full semester of credits.
Students find internships in their area of interest, and also produce a research paper on a topic of their choice. Each student has a mentor who is a U-M alum. On weekends students visit the monuments and explore the cultural scene in the capital. Most leave Washington longing to return after graduation.
Scholarships are available for this living and learning program.
