Students of all majors, minors, and interests are invited to attend The Harkin Institute’s D.C. Experience Scholarship Open House on Tuesday, October 9 from 7 – 8:30 PM. The open house is a great place to learn about interning in Washington, D.C. and how the Institute can help fund your experience.
This is an informal event. Arrive between 7 and 7:20 to meet past recipients and student employees of The Harkin Institute. A short program will begin at 7:20, and our 2018 scholarship recipients will share their experiences working in D.C. this past summer.
Students will also have an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how to put this valuable scholarship to work for you!
The Harkin Institute D.C. Experience Scholarship is designed to expose students to policymakers and the policymaking process, breaking down the barriers to interning in D.C. by providing financial assistance to students who demonstrate financial need and are offered an internship that pays below the federal minimum wage.
