Maine Government Summer Intern in the News

Thirty-nine student interns are hard at work this summer in a variety of jobs in Maine state and local governments.  One of these students, Sarah Maloney, is working in the Maine Department of Transportation as a transportation planning intern with supervisor Nate Howard. Sarah is from Scarborough, Maine, and is an Environmental Science and Policy major at Clark University. In her work at MaineDOT Sarah is involved in a planning project for replacing or rehabilitating the international bridge between Madawaska and Edmundston, New Brunswick. She has recently attended public meetings in both Madawaska and Edmunston to get public input on the project. The project is featured in an article in the St. John Valley Times/Fiddlehead Focus.

The Maine Government Summer Internship Program has placed 39 interns in state and local government internships for the summer of 2017. Internships are full-time for 12 weeks and interns typically work on one or more major projects as well as learning the roles and functions of government agencies.
