Internship Resources and Support

As is the case during the academic year, course participants are responsible for independently securing their summer internships before the beginning of the summer term. Please see resources below to assist in finding an internship.

NYU students should first make an appointment with a Wasserman Career Coach via Handshake, and must submit cover letters and résumés for review by the Wasserman Center for Career Services before applying to internship opportunities. Students can also email if they are unable to find an appointment time that works with their schedules. Visiting students are also highly encouraged to submit all internship application material for review to their home institution's career service office before submission to D.C. postings.

Insurance Services in Washington, DC

New York University requires that students studying away as part of their education program be covered under an NYU-sponsored health insurance plan. Students must continue to maintain health insurance coverage in their home countries in the event they need to return home. Students can waive this requirement with an appropriate family plan.
