So much of the GW student experience is shaped by our location in Washington, D.C. Each year, hundreds of students take advantage of the superior realworld education and training that GW provides through its numerous internship opportunities, but the financial burden associated with internships can be challenging.
The Knowledge in Action Career Internship Fund (KACIF) keeps many students from deciding between a once-in-a-lifetime internship and a part-time job for financial purposes. KACIF internship grants encourage GW students to pursue high-quality, unpaid internships that foster their career exploration and enhance their academic growth, while reducing the financial challenges associated with unpaid internships.
For students who can't afford an unpaid internship, KACIF is the difference between a dull summer job and the learning experience of a lifetime.
UPDATE: More than 1,346 donors made a gift in June 2018 to unlock $100,000 from GW Trustees Scott Amey, MS '75, his wife Debbie, and Steve Ross, BBA '81 for the Knowledge in Action Career Internship Fund. Together, this will enhance the GW experience and assist approximately 76 ADDITIONAL students take on internships this upcoming academic year.
