As part of the Grinnell-in-Washington program, you spend a unique semester in the nation’s capital as you explore careers, meet professionals in a variety of fields, and learn about yourself in a professional environment. You study intensively with a Grinnell faculty member, connect with the Washington area’s strong alumni network, and complete a four-day-a-week internship in fields such as policy, finance, education, science, social work, and more.


Two Grinnellians join sixteen students from other colleges to share their off-campus study experiences.
