Summer Research Program


Faculty and staff at our member institutions can apply to stay in LCWS housing during the summer. The purpose is to provide a low-cost way to pursue professional goals in Washington, DC during the summer.  We are open to applications from individuals conducting research in their areas of expertise, developing course content related to DC, or exploring experiential opportunities for students.
