The Washington Center for Internships

Kutztown University is proud to announce a partnership with The Washington Center for the benefit of KU students participating in their nationally-recognized internship program in Washington, D.C.

In the past, participating students were required to pay separately, sending payments to both The Washington Center for their program and housing fees, and to Kutztown University, for its tuition and fees. This was both cumbersome and costly for students. To better support students and increase the number of students participating, the university will now allocate a portion of the student’s tuition dollars toward the program. University students are able to participate in The Washington Center (1) at a reduced cost to them and (2) through a streamlined, one-payment process.
