Summer Internships

We want you to explore and succeed. That's why we've designed special internship programs that give you a powerful immersion into technology policy or government innovation. Students accepted into these programs gain a competitive edge with real-world experience.

Hatfield Scholars Program

The Hatfield Scholars Program, established in 2006, encourages student interest in public service by providing grants for summer internships in government or public interest positions. The Program honors and promotes the values that Dale Hatfield has embodied during his distinguished career, which has taken him from the Federal Communications Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce to his professorship at the University of Colorado and leadership role at Silicon Flatirons. Graduates of the program gain an exceptional experience through their internships, which otherwise may not have been achieved without the scholarship. The program runs in parallel to the DC Summer Program.
