Washington-Hillsdale Internship Program


The Washington-Hillsdale Internship Program (WHIP), together with the George Washington Fellowship Program and Semester in D.C., forms the chief component of undergraduate education offered by Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship. The purpose of the Kirby Center is to inspire a generation of public servants, young men and women who place the Constitution at the heart of their careers and their policies, and whose work is grounded in real knowledge of that document. WHIP is at the core of this effort, and seeks to train students not in the typical ways of Washington, but in a mode of thinking and acting that differs substantially from the administrative state, as students pursue an education for liberty. To that end, WHIP students are taught to know and defend the enduring principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
