The Washington Center works with over 600 non-profits, businesses, and government entities to make sure you are placed in the right internship.  They provide apartment style housing and professional development classes as well.

Your internship will earn you college credit from UA-Little Rock and contribute to your upper-level electives.

  • What majors are allowed to intern? Students of all majors are welcome.
  • What class years are permitted to participate? You must be at least a sophomore.
