How to Apply

LCWS Application Materials

  • Completed application form signed by your Campus Representative
  • Non-Refundable Application Fee of $250.00 must be received to complete the application process. Please make checks payable to: Lutheran College Washington Consortium.
  • Resume
  • Unofficial Transcript
  • Letter(s) of Recommendation: One letter is required, but two letters are preferred. Letters of recommendation will be used for internship applications, not for acceptance into the Lutheran College Washington Semester (LCWS). Please ask your recommender to focus on your work ethic, professionalism, and any other qualities that would be relevant in the context of employment. Letters should be addressed to "To Whom It May Concern," and the recommendation should be for future employment (i.e. "I highly recommend (Student's Name) for an internship with your organization."). All letters must be on letterhead.

LCWS Application Deadlines

The LCWS application is due April 1 for fall semesters; October 15 for spring semesters.

Please mail all application materials to: LCWS, 1025 Arlington Blvd., Arlington, VA 22209

Important Note About High-Profile Internships: While LCWS can help you apply to many internships, there are some high-profile internships (i.e. White House, FBI, State Department, etc.) that have very specific internship application procedures and very early deadlines - often times, these deadlines will hit before the LCWS Application Deadline. If you are interested in these types of internships, it is your responsibility to monitor and meet the application deadlines. If you have any questions or concerns as you begin working on your applications for these positions, please email LCWS at [email protected]
