Student Opportunity: Washington D.C. Professional Enrichment Academy

The University of Nebraska’s Federal Relations Team is working with campus counterparts to promote the Summer 2020 D.C. Professional Enrichment Academy in Washington, D.C. Applications are being accepted now, with the final deadline on April 15.

This is the third summer for the Academy, which provides students from across the University of Nebraska who are interning in D.C. with a free, value-added program. The D.C. Academy meets once a week in the evening and connects students with prominent alumni and each other. Guest speakers cover topics such as “Policymaking in Congress” and “The News Media in American Democracy.”

This is a great opportunity for students to benefit from thoughtful mentoring and programming, expand their network and learn to transition from college into their professional careers.

Faculty who are interested in sharing this information with their students can find more details in this announcement.

Please contact the University of Nebraska Federal Relations Team with any questions at dcintern@nebraska.edu.
