Fellowships and Internships in the City of Providence are an exciting and creative way to get involved in the community, while also gaining valuable work experience. Interns are able to see first-hand how the City functions on a daily basis, as well as learn how long term goals and policies are constructed. Students gain hands-on experience with city government and develop skills that will serve them well in future occupations.
The City of Providence is now accepting applications for the 2013 Summer Mayoral Fellowship Program. This program is generously sponsored by Cox Communications. For more information or to apply to be a Mayoral Fellow, please click here.
Internships in the City are unpaid, volunteer positions and there is great flexibility in scheduling internship hours with no minimum time commitment. Students may choose to work during the summer, school semesters or even year-round.
To apply for an internship, email Elise Swearingen and schedule an appointment to complete an application and an interview. Positions are available in a number of city departments and great care is taken to match student interests and skills with the needs of each office.
