John Glenn Washington Academic Internship Program Outreach

Attention Alumni! The Washington Academic Internship program (WAIP) is seeking internship hosts for 2 students this summer: one with a Geography/GIS background, and one with an interest in international affairs and homeland security. Please reach out to Kathryn Hogan at hogan.124@osu.edu if you work in either field and have the ability to host an intern this summer.

The John Glenn Washington Academic Internship Program is looking for mentors in Washington, DC. The Program is expanding into the international agency fields, and environmental policy areas. If you would like more information on how you can “pay forward” and help the Program please contact Kathryn Hogan at hogan.124@osu.edu. Without the support of local alumni, this program would not be as strong as it is.
