FIU in Washington D.C. advances our university’s research and leadership in areas of financial aid, STEM education, the cyber workforce, defense, extreme events, transportation, and the environment.

Why Washington, D.C.?

Our nation’s capital is the center of domestic, foreign and scientific policy. Decisions made by the federal government and influence asserted by corporations, media, think tanks, and foreign governments are all critical to the rise of FIU’s research innovation enterprise and global prestige. As over 2,500 alumni in the capital region prove, this is a strong market for impactful jobs and leadership opportunities.

Every year, a group of motivated students and recent graduates follow their dreams in the nation’s capital and earn competitive internships. Yet for most students, these dreams are simply out of reach. Over half of our students are the first in their families to attend college, and nearly 50% of our undergrads depend on financial aid to support their studies alone. The prospect of a life-changing internship or job opportunity in Washington is unlikely, although they represent the exciting future of our country. By donating today, you will Make A Difference for our students in Washington, D.C.
