The program will not be operating during the  2017-18 academic year. Students who would like to spend a semester in Washington D.C. are encouraged to look at American University's Washington Semester Program and George Washinton University's Semester in Washington Program.

A semester in Washington offers internship and research opportunities unlike in any other part of the country or world. Washington is also a fantastic place to learn about public policy. While in Washington, Grinnell students are particularly encouraged to get to know Grinnell’s robust alumni network and talk about what life after college might hold for you.
