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.
