John Glenn Washington Academic Internship Program Outreach
The John Glenn Washington Academic Internship Program (WAIP) is looking for mentors and possible internship opportunities in Washington, DC. The Program is expanding into the international agency fields, and environmental policy areas. Without the support of local alumni, this program would not be as strong as it is.

  • Agriculture, sustainable food, school lunch program
  • Criminal justice
  • International (education, policy, justice, etc.)
  • Budget/finance in the public sector
  • Think tank/research
  • Labor policy/pro-union policy
  • Environment and sustainability
  • Government affairs
  • Defense/security/intelligence

If you are interested or know of someone who would be interested in being a mentor please email Katy Hogan.
