Bring a Class or Group
: for a transformative Washington, D.C. experience
It is common for faculty to organize a group of their own students to attend an academic seminar at The Washington Center.Â Teachers find many incentives for organizing their own group seminar;
- TWCâ€™s Academic Seminars are an ideal professional development opportunity for faculty.
- Leading a group is an easy way for your institution to ensure that the work completed is sufficient for the number of credits being awarded for studentsâ€™ participation.
- Cohorts are a way for you to help fully integrate what students learn with a particular course or curriculum offered on their campus.
- A full scholarship is awarded by TWC for every 10 fully paid students who accompany the faculty leader.Â This amount can be given to an 11th student or distributed among the 10 paid students to reduce the overall cost per student.
There are several options available to faculty who accompany a group of their own students to TWC:
- You can serve as their faculty leader.
- Your students can be distributed among other groups.
- You can participate as a faculty fellow, becoming a paid participant.
If you are interested in serving as a faculty leader or would like to recommend someone, please fill in a faculty leader response form, indicating which seminar you are interested in.

Costs & Scholarships
Many schools encourage student participation by collecting the tuition for three credits and pay The Washington Center for the seminar from the tuition collected, keeping the difference. In that way, students are not â€śdouble-billedâ€ť and the program becomes quite affordable. Some institutions have waived tuition or forwarded the tuition to The Washington Center with the students paying the difference if necessary. Most students are granted between one and two credits for one week and additional credit for independent study work if arranged separately.
Scholarships are available to help recruit students. For every 10 students participating, their institution receives one full scholarship that might either be used for an 11th student or can be distributed among the other 10 students to lower their overall costs.
