Since 2000, Flinders has sent over 120 students on a unique program which provides a placement in the US Congress.
The Washington Internship Program (WIP) runs for 8 weeks, with an alternative 17 week program, combining the Washington Internship Program with a Capital Semester Program (WIPCASP), also available.
Students work full-time in the office of a member of the United States Senate or the US House of Representatives, providing an opportunity, unparalleled in Australasia, to experience political life in Washington DC. WIPCASP students also study at George Mason University to complete 2 topics.
Both programs are open to enrolled Flinders University students, who have met the pre-requisite topic requirements. Admission to the programs is by application only and is competitive.
