Explore America Summer Internship Program

The Explore America internship program (formerly known as Comegys Bight) matches outstanding Washington College students with summer internships at some of the nation’s leading cultural institutions – and pays those students a stipend for their work. The program, offered through the Starr Center, annually provides up to ten students with high-level work and research experience on topics related to American culture.

The program recognizes students’ “intellect, curiosity, and  resourcefulness.”

Student interns have helped to script a film on African Americans in 18th-century Virginia; cataloged early maps and travel accounts of Brazil and Peru; led tours at Harpers Ferry; and delved into original manuscripts to document Marylanders’ participation in the Revolutionary War.
