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.

This summer, WAIP will be hosting its largest class of fellows. We need your help with mentors.  Area of interests for this class of fellows are:

  • 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.

Host Football Gamewatches

Help us run football gamewatches this fall! Join the Gamewatch Committee and help run our halftime raffles. We’re able to award 3 scholarships to DC, MD, and VA students to attend Ohio State thanks in large part to the money we raise during football season at each of our official gamewatch locations. For more information, email Jenn.
