Are you a capable and motivated undergraduate student looking for an internship in Annapolis? The Maryland Internship Program (MIP) is a comprehensive program focused on State government that allows students to integrate what they learn in the classroom with real world experience in the political process. Each spring, 15 to 20 highly-qualified undergraduate students are placed in internships where they work with and learn from officials in state government. Possible internship placements include the offices of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor, members of the General Assembly, state agencies, and courts. Participants earn course credit and stipends during the semester-long program by attending weekly seminars and completing various assignments, aside from their internship duties. Alumni of the Maryland Internship Program will also take with them invaluable experiences, skills, and networking that will help them find, and succeed in, careers in government, politics, or any other field.
This internship may be eligible for CCJS credit subject to review, but can still be considered by all BSOS students. Applications are due by October 28, 2011. For more information visit www.capc.umd.edu/mip.
