Financial Assistance:

The Washington Center and CFGU are working hard to make this program affordable for the students who can not afford to participate due to financial need. After all, more than 75 percent of the TWC interns receive some form of financial assistance.

For some students, the cost of participation is comparable to what they pay at their home institutions. For others, the cost is higher, but still within reach and exceptionally reasonable for this type of a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the nation's capital.

Please visit TWC website for the latest information.



University Arrangements:
Students attending The Washington Center earn academic credit from their college or university for their internships. Students are therefore eligible to receive their usual federal and state financial aid up to the cost of attendance through the institution granting the credit if their own resources are not sufficient to cover the cost of attendance.


State Funding:
Some states or commonwealths provide assistance to qualifying students attending The Washington Center. For current eligibility criteria and amounts of assistance, please see the links below. Support may be subject in some cases to final budget approval.


Private Funding:
We offer selected students assistance from a number of private sources and public corporations.
