The Center for American Politics at the University of Maryland offers the Maryland Internship Program (MIP), a comprehensive program focused on state and local government that allows students to integrate what they learn in the classroom with real
world experience in the political process.
This competitive program places highly qualified undergraduate students in internships where they work with and learn from officials in state and local government. Internship placements include the offices of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor, members of the General Assembly, state and local agencies, and courts.
Participants earn up to nine credit hours in GVPT as well as a travel stipend during the semester-long program by attending a weekly seminar and completing 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.
The Center for American Politics and Citizenship and the Maryland Internship Program are both operated within the Department of Government and Politics at the University of Maryland.
