28 Why WAIP?  The John Glenn School of Public Affairs offers an exciting opportunity for Ohio State students to study and work in the nation's capital.  The Washington Academic Internship Program selects outstanding undergraduates from any major to spend a quarter in Washington, D.C., as John Glenn Fellows.  Students work in field placements that reflect their particular areas of academic interest.

29 What do I get from WAIP?  While in Washington, John Glenn Fellows remain fully registered Ohio State students.  Students earn 3 classes worth of academic credit hours for their internship, the research seminar in which a policy paper is developed, and a course on policymaking and public service in the Washington community.  Glenn Fellows meet policy professionals and interact with Ohio State alumni in the region. These interactions have value far beyond the quarter in which Fellows are involved in the program.
