Because of WAIP...
"I have grown into a networking professional and created rewarding experience in my time as an undergrad at Ohio State." — Marcella Hoard
WAIP Fellows intern full-time hours Monday-Thursday. Internship sites are determined before students arrive in Washington.
Seminar is held once a week and includes discussion of readings, policy presentations and a final deliverable of a substantive policy paper.
Policy salons occur weekly and provide Fellows the opportunity to learn about a specific policy areas from experts in the field.
Fellows will have the unique opportunity to attend seminars that will enable them to develop their networking skills, polish their resume and meet OSU alumni.
Study tours occur every Friday and allow the WAIP Fellows to explore Washington as a group. Study tours might include a trip to the U.S. Supreme Court, a tour of the National Archives or a visit to the Pentagon.
Each Fellow will be matched with an OSU alumnus to mentor them throughout their WAIP semester. Fellows can turn to mentors for professional advice, resume assistance and guidance.
