TWC Annual Scholarship Dinner
Join us for a special evening to celebrate the impact we make in our students’ lives and in society.
The Washington Center's Annual Scholarship Dinner is an opportunity for partners representing corporations and foundations, colleges and universities, and our own TWC alumni, to come together to support experiential learning opportunities for students of all backgrounds. Join us in honoring these partnerships which help us create truly transformational experiences to nearly 2,000 college students and young professionals from around the world each year.
TWC Scholarship Fund
Net proceeds from the 2018 Annual Scholarship Dinner will support the TWC Scholarship Fund, which provides students with financial barriers the opportunity to participate in The Washington Center’s impactful experiential education programs. This includes first-generation college students, students with disabilities, students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and veterans transitioning into the workforce.
Nearly 85% of TWC participants receive some form of financial assistance to participate in our programs.
