Students in DC

Subsidized Unpaid Interns Program (SUIP)

We are excited to announce the launch of the Subsidized Unpaid Interns Program (SUIP) for UCDC students. The program aims to provide pay equity among students participating in the program, regardless of whether their internships are paid or unpaid. Students are automatically enrolled in this program, so they do not have to apply.

SUIP will provide a subsidy of $1,000 to students whose internships are unpaid or a payment to make up the difference if their internships pay less than $1,000. The initiative aligns with the mission of UCDC to make it possible for all UC Davis students to participate in the program.

We recognize that many of you have given up opportunities on campus to participate in UCDC, and we understand the financial pressures that come with pursuing an unpaid internship. SUIP aims to reduce the financial burden on you and provide a level playing field for all program participants.

We hope that the SUIP program will support you in your internship and help you make the most of your time in Washington, D.C. If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to email
