Are you a capable and motivated undergraduate student looking for an internship? The Center for American Politics and Citizenship (CAPC) coordinates many exciting opportunities for students interested in Government and Politics. A participant in the Maryland Internship Program (MIP) had this to say:
MIP helped me appreciate and value the state government, between the two levels of government I have come to realize that the true practice of democracy is at the state level. It is both a lot more transparent and user friendly….I was able to attend conferences hosted by National Conference for State Legislatures (NCSL), in which I was able to meet Senators, Representatives and Delegates from plethora of other states.
CAPC and the Department of Government and Politics offer three exciting internship programs to help University of Maryland undergraduates gain real-world experience in government and public policy, coupled with classroom training: the Maryland Internship Program (MIP), Capitol Hill Internship Program (CHIP), and Public Policy Internship Program (PPIP). You will have the opportunity to intern in federal, state and local government offices and agencies for a semester, earning course credit and valuable experience.
Applications are currently being accepted for the Spring 2014 Session of MIP (deadline November 1st), CHIP, and PPIP.
