Capital Internship Program now accepting applications for fall semester 2019 through April 8

Internship program provides students with first-hand public service experience


Ohio University is accepting applications for the Ohio University Capital Internship Program until Monday, April 8.

It was established last fall to provide the opportunity for students with an interest in government and public policy to participate first-hand in public service by observing and contributing to the legislative process.

Through the Ohio University Capital Internship Program, a select cohort of OHIO students will spend fall semester term working full time in Washington, D.C. as an intern. Previous students in this program have worked in the office of a member of Congress or with a Congressional Committee. Interns may take on a range of roles depending on the particular needs of the placement host.

Capital Interns will live in a common location, facilitating peer-to-peer learning. Interns on this program will receive a scholarship to participate, with the remaining cost of attendance consistent with a regular academic semester.

Eligibility Requirements to participate in the Ohio University Capital Internship Program include:

  • Junior or Senior status in any major, on any OHIO campus
  • Minimum GPA of 3.0
  • In good judicial standing

The program, co-directed by Dr. Geoff Dabelko, professor and associate dean in the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs and Dr. Sarah Poggione, chair of Political Science in College of Arts and Sciences, is administered by the University’s Office of Global Opportunities.
