Meet the Brown in Washington Cohorts
The Brown in Washington Summer SPRINT Signature Program (previously called the Brown Summer Policy Fellowship) is a paid opportunity with a stipend (and a Summer Earnings Waiver, for qualifying students) for undergraduate students to spend a summer as an intern with a Washington D.C.-based public agency or think tank focused on policy. Students intern at their site for 10 weeks and take part in co-curricular programming that provides them with rich learning experiences, valuable peer-to-peer support, and deep professional connections.
In summer 2022, the base stipend for all SPRINT domestic opportunities is $2,500. In addition, aided students with parent contribution/responsibility of $15,001 and above will automatically receive a Gap Award of $2,000, for a total of $4,500. Similarly, aided students with parent contribution/responsibility of $15,000 and below will receive a Gap Award of $3,000 for a total of $5,500. Parent contribution/responsibility is determined by the Office of Financial Aid. Eligible students may also qualify for a Summer Earnings Waiver.
For summer 2022, the cohort will include up to 17 undergraduate students. Students are expected to participate in a required co-curriculum (approximately 2-5 hours per week) which will include facilitated discussions, written reflection assignments, and professional development workshops. The dates of the program are May 26, 2022 to August 5, 2022. For more information, watch this video of the March 2022 Info Session.
The Brown in Washington Summer SPRINT Signature Program may satisfy the practicum requirement for students participating in the Engaged Scholarship Certificate.
