Each Fall and Spring, the UCDC Program sends undergraduates to Washington, D.C., to complete academic research projects of their own design, and to participate in internships related to their research. The Program is open to juniors and seniors in any major, and graduating seniors may participate during their final semester at UCB (but not after they actually graduate).
To apply, you must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and have junior or senior standing in the semester you plan to attend. Internships are available in a wide variety of DC-based government agencies, nonprofit organizations, policy think-tanks, media outlets, and businesses. Students live in the UC Washington Center at Scott Circle and UCB financial aid is transferrable to DC. Students earn a full semester of UCB academic credit.
Applications for the Spring 2015 UCDC Program are due Wednesday, October 1, 2014 at 4 P.M.
