Capital Semester Program for Spring 2017, Washington, DC

It’s not too late for you to spend your Spring 2017 semester in Washington, DC through the Capital Semester program. This program is ideal for students interested in International Affairs and Public Policy.  The final deadline is November 10, 2016.

Sponsored by The Fund for American Studies, with academic credit provided through George Mason University, Capital Semester is an academic internship program that offers undergraduate students a first-hand look at international affairs and public policy through:
• An internship placement in foreign affairs or public policy
• A full time course load in international economics and government
• Exclusive lectures, briefings and professional development seminars
• Housing just steps from the Supreme Court and Capitol building

It will be an exciting time to be in Washington – students will be in Washington for the Presidential Inauguration and the first few months of a new Administration.

Please visit for more information on the program. Thank you for your time and consideration. I may be reached at or 202.986.0384 with any questions.
