Zoe Scott ‘18

"I liked knowing that I had people in my corner. Being surrounded by talented, smart, capable people inspired me to push myself to be my best, which was exciting. But, more than that, I knew I had a support system there in D.C. if I needed it."


Rosario Duran ‘18

"My advisor told me about this program. At first, I found it too good to be true! They pay for everything: housing, food, even dry-cleaning bills for your office clothes. I had always wanted to intern on Capitol Hill, but it was inaccessible for me as someone from a low-income household. College to Congress was able to make it a reality for me. The program is amazing! It's opening doors for students who couldn't otherwise get here.”
