National Capital Region Internship Program

Virginia Tech believes that skill and preparation come when theory and practice meet. Our location in the National Capital Region (NCR) provides us access to engage public, private, and non-profit organizations in projects of national and international scope. As our relationships with these sectors deepen, we recognize the opportunity to facilitate this meeting of theory and practice to the benefit of our students and our partners: students practiced and experienced; organizations living and implementing their organizational missions.

With this in mind, the Virginia Tech Research Center-Arlington has inaugurated an internship program to connect students to the myriad of opportunities in the NCR. Our initiative is an extension of the well-established program in Blacksburg and serves to expand Virginia Tech’s reach into the community. We hope you will find it a valuable source.
