How do I find an internship?

The primary responsibility of securing internships rests with the you as a WinW participant. However, your success is our goal! You will have the help and guidance of the Wisconsin in Washington advisors, your department faculty and advisors, and the WinW DC program manager. Our UW-Madison DC alumni also are a great resource for internship leads and ideas. WinW internship guidance includes one-on-one collaboration with the program advisors and DC program manager on selecting internship possibilities and polishing internship application materials including resumes, cover letters and personal statements.
