All applicants must be completing an internship with an organization based in the greater DC area in Summer 2021 to be eligible for the scholarship.

For purposes of this scholarship, an internship is defined as a short-term work experience offered by companies and other organizations for people to gain exposure to a particular industry or field. The DC Gator Club recognizes fellowships as also meeting these criteria.
