Washington Internship Institute (WII) Affiliation, Washingtion, D.C

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.

  • 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.
