CapitolWorks, a collaboration between Middlebury in DC and the Middlebury College Center for Careers and Internships (CCI), is a summer program intended to complement your internship on Capitol Hill and allow Middlebury students to put theory into practice by learning first hand, how federal policy is developed in the United States.
The program consists of workshops and panel discussions and other program activities during the summer outside of their internships. Program activities will be led by Middlebury alumni holding important positions on and around Capitol Hill. Contacts with Middlebury alumni are an important part of the program and each intern accepted to this program will automatically be enrolled in the DC Midd Mentor Program and be assigned an alumni mentor. CapitolWorks Program participants will receive a $100 metro card from CCI.
Application deadline: Wednesday, May 15, 11:55 PM Eastern Standard Time. Students should not apply to participate in CapitolWorks until you have already secured your Washington, DC-based internship. Space is very limited! If accepted you will also be automatically enrolled in the DC Mentorship Program as well.
Students will intern at a wide array of Senate and House offices. All offices must be located in Washington, DC. Program participants must be independently accepted at one of these internships in order to participate in this program.
During the summer CapitolWorks students will come together three times to meet with a Middlebury alumni professional working in and around Capitol Hill. These days will include a combination of:
- In-depth analysis of the legislative process on Capitol Hill
- The roll of lobbyists in public policy
- Career conversations with experienced Middlebury alumni on Capitol Hill
2019 Program Dates:
CapitolWorks will run in June and July. The exact start date depends on each congressional office. (Only students who can participate in June and July should apply.)
CapitolWorks students will be awarded a $100 metro card.
Any current Middlebury College student that is not a graduating senior and wishes to learn about how the federal government of the United States works is invited to apply, regardless of major. CapitolWorks is open to international students.
Academic credit is not granted for participation in CapitolWorks.
