Cornerstone Intern House
Sunday June 3, 2018 - Friday July 27, 2018
Washington, D.C. and College Park, MD
The Cornerstone Intern House in College Park, Maryland, is a housing option for Washington, D.C. summer interns. Cornerstone has provided a unique family-oriented atmosphere for nearly 20 years. The hope is that Cornerstone would provide a fun atmosphere for summer interns who are seeking to learn and grow not only in their career objectives, but also in their relationships.
Residents of Cornerstone can look forward to a family-like atmosphere, with home-cooked dinners Monday-Thursday evenings and weekly house meetings featuring speakers who discuss servant leadership, community service, and relationships. Past speakers have included Members of Congress from both political parties, Capitol Hill staffers, business leaders and various D.C. community leaders. Extended dates may be available upon request.
Cost: $275 pro-rated weekly (includes utilities and dinners Monday-Thursday). Space is limited in the house, and placement is made on a first-come, first-served basis. You will be notified of your acceptance or placement on the waiting list within two business days of submission. Upon acceptance, your first 4 weeks' rent ($1100) and a $100 down payment are due immediately in order to reserve your space.
Rooms: All rooms are comparable to a college dorm room and furnished with twin beds and a dresser. You will need to provide your own linens along with anything else you need. The rooms are designed to house between two and four students. If there is a person you would like to request as a roommate, please make a notation on your application. If you do not have a roommate choice, you will be assigned a roommate. The house is co-ed with single sex floors and bathrooms.
