Obama Wants You: White House Accepting Applications for D.C. Scholars Program

Looking for a cool summer job? The White House D.C. Scholars Program is now accepting applications.


Calling all Washington, D.C., public and charter high school students! The White House recently announced that it is accepting applications for its D.C. Scholars Program.

The program gives high school students an opportunity to receive real work experience and an inside look at the White House's operations. While the program isn't paid, program participants pair up with a mentor, attend weekly lectures and contribute to a summer project. Interested applicants should apply by April 24th. 

So forget about working at a fast food joint this summer. If you are going to work for somebody, it might as well be the president.

For more information and to apply, visit DC Scholars.
