Posted on 24 July 2019 | 11:39 am — 

The Washington Center is offering a fully-funded opportunity for students. Typically there is a fee involved for students who work with The Washington Center, but the Federal Aviation Administration is covering those costs. Students would be responsible for housing, but a stipend will be provided to help alleviate expenses. Since this opportunity would require a full-time work schedule, it would be considered co-op at the College. Students can contact Kristin Wichmann (wichmannkm@cofc.edu) for more information on the co-op process.
