What Is the Washington Fellowship?

Ever wondered what it’s like to live in the United States Capitol? Liberty University gives students a chance to experience Washington D.C. for themselves through The Washington Fellowship. Through this internship, students have the opportunity to receive work experience, college credit, and live in D.C. with other Liberty students.

What is the Application Process like?

The Washington Fellowship is looking for students in all majors. Students can put in their application as early as a year or a semester in advance. Prior to a student’s acceptance, the Fellowship will work hands-on with students to do professional development, work with career coaches, help them write their resume, cover letter, and how to prep for an interview with the help of Liberty University Career Services.

Landon Keen, who participated in The Washington Fellowship his Junior year and is now a student worker for The Fellowship, says it’s the best internship to jump-start your career.

“It definitely is more than just an internship; it’s networking, it’s connections.” – Land Keen

Why the Washington Fellowship?

Program Coordinator Scott Leuz has been working to encourage all students in different majors to apply for The Washington Fellowship. It is more than just an internship but a network.

“I’m trying to recruit students to be interested in the program and letting them know about what’s involved in the fellowship as far as housing, the professional development, what we do for them, and the networking we provide.” – Program Coordinator Scott Leuz

The program is designed as a resume builder for students to gain real work and life experience in one internship. Students have a chance to meet and interact with other students while living in Washington D.C.

“The connections and the skills that you gain whether it’s being a Capitol hill intern or interning for the White House those skills are able to translate into any job environment, and it definitely bolsters your resume.” – Liberty Alumni Emily Wood

What is the direction of the program today?
