2018 World Affairs Council Leadership Academy on International Affairs


Academy of International Studies and Law students– each summer the World Affairs Council of Washington D.C. offers a  Leadership Academy on International Affairs.  This summer’s experience is scheduled for July 16-20, 2018.  It is a commuter event, and lunch is provided each day.  This is an excellent experience and can also serve as a wonderful Capstone Project to help you earn an Academy Certificate upon graduation.  The week consists of visits to D.C. government and private agencies, a variety of guest speakers addressing current international affairs topics, and the chance to make new friends with students from public and private high schools in the D.C. metro area.  The cost is only $150.00 for the entire week, and scholarships are available if payment is an issue for any applicant.  Open this link to access the registration information for this summer’s event!


Please e-mail or check in with me personally if you have any questions or would like any information at all.  Any students who do register for this event, PLEASE let me know so I can speak with you about the experience and how to make this into a great Capstone Project to be presented during the 2018-2019 school year as you earn your academy certificate.
