Contribute to the WAIP scholarship fund during this February Buckeye Month of Giving!

We are lucky to have current Ohio State students here in D.C. every semester as they take part in The John Glenn College of Public Affairs Washington Academic Internship Program (WAIP)! WAIP selects outstanding undergraduates from any major to spend a semester in Washington, D.C., as John Glenn Fellows. Students work in field placements that reflect their particular areas of academic interest. Recent internships include the EPA, U.S. Department of Education, Children’s Defense Fund, Partnership for Public Service, Battelle, U.S Department of Commerce, the White House, U.S. Senate and the Federal Judicial Center. The internships are life changing and allow students to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom.

While in Washington, John Glenn Fellows remain fully registered Ohio State students. Students earn academic credit hours for their internship, the research seminar in which a policy paper is developed, and a course on policymaking and public service in the Washington community.

This opportunity, while priceless, costs students an extra $4200 for their semester in Washington, making it cost prohibitive for many to go. To contribute, visit the Buckeye Funder page here! Your tax-deductible contribution counts towards your $75 OSUAA sustaining membership.
