The 2013 Student Application Is Now Closed
The 2013 Maine State Government Summer Internship Program will run May 28 through August 16 for a total of 12 weeks. The program will begin with an orientation in May in Augusta. The program also includes an mid-summer educational component which requires that interns attend a seminar in Augusta. The program will conclude with a reception on the last day of the internship during which interns will be awarded a certificate of completion by the Governor or his designee.
Academic credit will not be granted through the Maine State Government Summer Internship Program. Students seeking academic credit must make arrangements with academic programs at their own college or university.
Interns are not eligible for holiday pay for Memorial Day (Monday, May 27) or Independence Day (July 4). In the alternative, and to the extent scheduling and work requirements allow, the employing agency should allow interns to work extra hours to make up for lost hours as the result of an absence or an unpaid holiday. Arrangements must be made directly with the intern’s supervisor to make up those hours. The maximum number of hours to be worked by each Intern during the 12-week Program is 480 hours.
