Eligibility for Internships


Students of all majors are eligible for The Washington Center (TWC) program. Applicants must possess a GPA of at least 2.75 and have 45 credits at the time of their internship. 
Internships are available in the fall (15 weeks), spring (15 weeks), or summer (10 weeks). All students will receive 12* UMass Lowell academic credits for the successful completion of their internship experience during the fall or spring semesters. Summer semester internships earn 9* UMass Lowell academic credits.

*Students, through their UMass Lowell academic department, may be eligible for an additional three credits.

The University of Massachusetts in collaboration with TWC may provide fellowships/grants to Massachusetts residents who have a 3.0 or above GPA and participate in TWC program. UMass tuition and fees are waived for all TWC internships. TWC program costs are then paid by the student. UMass Lowell's Financial Aid Office can explain when and if a particular student's financial award can be applied to TWC's cost.
