The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars (TWC) is an independent, nonprofit organization serving hundreds of colleges and universities in the United States and other countries by providing selected students challenging opportunities to work and learn in Washington, D.C., for academic credit. Offering internships and academic seminars throughout the year, the Washington Center allows students to gain valuable experience, and sets them on a course of achievement, leadership and engagement in their communities.

Two scholarships are available for students with disabilities:

  • Kessler Foundation Scholarship
    A limited number of full scholarships are competitively awarded to students who attend New Jersey institutions and self-identify as having a disability, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). For this award, students may be asked for a brief personal statement. Students interested in the Kessler Scholarship who attend a New Jersey institution are encouraged to email TWC at for more information.
  • AT&T Foundation and HSC Foundation Awards
    This award provides housing assistance in varying amounts (up to a full housing scholarship) to competitively selected students who self-identify as having a disability, as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
