DOSA CITC Our Priority

Our Priority

CITC is a rigorous and competitive student-run program supported by the UC Berkeley Public Service Center, connecting 65-70 students with internships serving in Congressional offices, the White House, NGOs, think tanks, federal agencies, the Institute of Medicine, the Smithsonian, and more.


In addition to contributing approximately 25,000 hours of public service during the summer, the CITC internships constitute a transformative learning experience. While still on the Berkeley campus, students complete a skills- and policy-based spring semester academic course. After arrival in our nation’s capital, interns reside in the UC Washington Center as they embark on a service project and engage in structured networking and mentoring opportunities with Cal alumni.


CITC receives nearly 200 applications each year for its coveted internships. The cost to students for the 10-week program is nearly $5,000 and since their summer internships are generally unpaid, CITC is out of reach for many Cal students. Our goal is that no student be turned away from CITC due to cost.
