SMPA Career Access Network

The SMPA Career Access Network (CAN), the J. Michael Shanahan Journalism Internship Fund, and the Kwittken Fund for Strategic Communication Internships and Mentorning all support student internships, enhance professional connections by supporting networking events, and create community by helping launch a student-alumni mentoring program.

Bring the dreams of a GW student to life by making a gift today.
Our goal is to raise $250,000 for these funds by June 2020 to support SMPA student internships and career networking.

“Receiving the scholarship meant opportunity to me. I would have never interned at CBS, I wouldn't have had the living costs and therefore would have had to go back home. It's allowed me to be at a huge news corporation and chase my dreams.”

- Nana Agyemang, SMPA class of 2016

A thank you to SMPA National Council Member and GW Parent Kathryn Green, BA '77, who generously matched $18,000 in gifts toward the SMPA Career Access Network in 2015.
