Students Begin Maine Government Internships

The Maine Government Summer Internship Program opened its 2014 internship season on Tuesday, May 27, 2014. There are 29 student interns this summer hosted in state and local government positions.

The Maine Government Summer Internship Program, administered by the Margaret Chase Smith Policy Center, is a full-time, 12 week, paid work experience. The program offers a unique opportunity for talented college students to work within Maine state government and to provide valuable assistance to state agencies while gaining practical skills in their fields of study. This year the program has expanded to include internships in Maine municipal government.

The Program was established in 1967 by the 103rd Maine Legislature to attract and select college students with ambition and talent for temporary internships within Maine state government. A total of 1,685 students have participated in the program since it was established. Undergraduate or graduate students who reside in Maine or attend a Maine school are eligible.
