You are responsible for securing your own housing for your fellowship this summer. The Fund for American Studies has limited housing space available with other summer interns. This comes in the form of a fully furnished apartment (utilities included) and within walking distance to a metro station and bus line. This housing would cost $2200 for the two months of the fellowship. The average monthly cost of a furnished apartment in DC is $2500. An unfurnished apartment rent averages id="mce_marker"100.
Below is a list of websites that often have ads for short-term apartment rentals:
“The Tisdale Fellowship provided a glimpse into the inner workings of Washington, D.C. The most interesting part of the Fellowship was watching the interplay between companies, regulatory bodies and Congress. This is the stuff you don’t learn in school; you learn to recognize and navigate the political dynamics by spending time here.”
