The Washington Internship Institute (WII) is an educational nonprofit organization that provides college students from both the U.S. and abroad with internships in Washington, D.C. The Colby-Sawyer College in Washington, D.C., WII program delivers a combination of experiential learning principles and academic rigor resulting in a semester that is challenging and actively engages students in their communities. Our affiliation with WII will allow students to remain enrolled at Colby-Sawyer College (fall and spring terms) and the credits earned will appear as Colby-Sawyer College credits which will be added to a student’s transcript upon completion of the WII course and receipt of the WII transcript.
Colby-Sawyer College students initially apply for this program through the Harrington Center for Experiential Learning and upon approval can then apply to the WII program.
Program Requirements for Admission:
- Students are juniors or seniors in good academic and social standing with a 2.50 minimum GPA at time of application.
- Sophomore students with excellent faculty references may apply.
- Harrington Center application deadlines are October 1st for spring semester and March 1st for fall semester and summer programs. Once accepted to Colby-Sawyer College study away students can apply directly to the WII program.
