Washington Internships for Native Students (WINS) (Undergraduate)


Offered by the School of Professional & Extended Studies , the Washington Internships for Native Students (WINS) offers American Indian/Alaska Native/Native Hawaiian (AI/AN/NH) students the opportunity to build leadership skills while living, studying, and interning in Washington, DC. Developed in response to the White House Initiative on American Indians and Alaska Natives, this enriching program offers qualified students full scholarships funded by American University and sponsoring organizations. Participating students gain professional work experience through interning at a federal agency or private firm, take academic courses focusing on Native American public policy concerns, and enjoy engaging social and cultural extra-curricular activities.

While working full-time for a government agency or private organization in an academically supervised internship, students earn 6 credits in the summer term. In addition to making connections in DC, participants meet other AI/AN/NH students from across the country through the full support of a multi-cultural campus environment.
