Description: 

UCDC is an internship program in Washington, D.C., sponsored by UCI's Career Center. The program was founded in 1982 by four UCI undergraduates and has experienced rapid, exciting, and dynamic growth ever since. Each year the program selects 40 to 50 outstanding UCI undergraduate and graduate students for eight to ten week internships in Washington, D.C. It is an ideal vantage point for students to examine behind-the-scenes activities that shape and implement our nation's future course.

The UCDC Summer Internship Program strives to promote a sense of civic responsibility in students by encouraging them to take an active part in public service. Each summer the UCDC Summer Internship Program offers students experiential learning in Washington D.C. There are numerous internship opportunities in various industries such as non-profit public service organizations, governmental agencies, communications and entertainment. Each student admitted into the UCDC Summer Internship Program works closely with the Coordinators and Advisors in preparation for the internship and living experience in D.C. While in D.C., student interns become directly involved in each organization's goals and objectives, and may perform such tasks as project research, responding to constituent concerns, attend hearings, direct investigations, and program development. Interns live in the UC Washington Center in the heart of D.C. and have direct access to the country's best form of public transportation. Students from all academic backgrounds and majors are encouraged to apply.
