One of our goals is to help cultivate future Muslim American leaders. It is very important that these future leaders have a first hand understanding, knowledge and experience of how our democracy works and functions. There is no better place than Washington D.C. to achieve and gain that knowledge and experience. We believe that Muslim American students need to participate in this process by obtaining an internship in Washington D.C.
CFGU has partnered with The Washington Center (TWC) for Internships and Academic Seminars to provide placement, housing and financial assistance to Muslim American students.
The Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars is an educational nonprofit organization serving hundreds of colleges and universities in the U.S. and other countries by providing selected students challenging opportunities to work and learn in Washington, D.C. for academic credit. The largest such program, The Washington Center, founded in 1975 with a staff of 70 has over 35,000 alumni, many of whom are leaders
in numerous professions and nations around the world.
