The Hamilton Program has become well-known in the Congress and in a variety of executive agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The College quite often receives requests from government offices for Hamilton interns. In addition, a number of program alumni have made careers in Washington after graduation.
Program participants spend four days a week as full-time staff members in a Congressional office and then in either an executive or NGO placement (the two usually split the term in half, though, in a few cases, participants have spent the term in a single placement). The internships are graded credit/no-credit, and together they count for a single course toward graduation.
