Preparations for the summer began immediately after this year’s class was selected, with participants coming together for a December 8 meeting in the Kinder Institute seminar room on internship hunting in D.C. Introductory meetings and outings will continue on a monthly basis throughout the spring semester, so the cohort can begin to gel and gather the information necessary to succeed in the capital prior to the program’s official start on June 5, 2017.
