1. Unpaid internship (not a scholarship) 2. No financial assistance for college 5. No housing provided 4. They will not pay for transpiration 5. You do receive job experience (as your getting penniless in the process) I don't know about you, but to me, this sounds like a great way for the White House to get people to work for them free of charge.

I live in the DC metropolitan area but I tell you, commuting to the White House and even that general area is not cheap if you have to take the subway everyday. And even when the law now says that DC employers how to cover for those subway fares of their employees, I'm pretty darn sure that White House would not supplant those costs, especially being that this is unpaid. Just putting that out there.

This is not a scholarship, it's an internship, and an unpaid one at that. While this may be an awesome opportunity for some, it is not a scholarship.

I wouldn't apply for this because it is unpaid and You have to take care of your housing. Seriously?!

Although I am enamored at the opportunity to go to D.C. for an internship, by requiring the applicant to finance the trip and commodities, the availability to apply becomes a matter of finance instead of academic and personal excellence as it should be. Perhaps financial aid could be offered if the winner needs it. I would hate to see a worthy applicant denied such an amazing opportunity simply due to economics.

I would love to apply for this scholarship. However, living on the West Coast makes going to D.C. and back ridiculously expensive, especially for college students (who are probably already scrounging for money).

I would love to apply for this program.
