Municipal Intern Program


Paid internships provide students who are considering a career in government an opportunity for real world experience. Local governments have also found that internships are a great way to get projects completed by enthusiastic students anxious to show what they can do.

Each year, the Local Government Academy brings students and potential employers together at the Municipal Internship Fair. The intern fair will be on March 30, 2017, from 12pm – 2:30pm, in the Kurtzman Room of the William Pitt Union, University of Pittsburgh. Click here to add the intern fair to your calendar.

Interested undergraduate and graduate students are invited to register to participate in the 2017 Municipal Intern Program.

Municipalities, authorities and Councils of Governments in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler and Washington counties, or municipalities under Act 47, or participating in the state’s DCED Early Intervention Program, are encouraged to participate.

Interested grads and undergrads can now view this year's selected projects for internship.
