Student Opportunities

Georgetown’s location in the nation’s capital enables students to pursue internships and build networks across sectors while living in a vibrant global city.

Students have opportunities to intern on Capitol Hill, working with national legislators and learning the inner workings of U.S. politics; at think tanks like the Brookings Institution or Cato Institute, conducting research under senior scholars; at global organizations like the World Bank; and at cultural institutions, including the vast network of world-renowned museums and performing arts centers located in Washington, D.C. Additionally, downtown institutions regularly hold events open to the public, making for an exciting and intellectually stimulating extracurricular experience.
