Last Day to Apply for Spring Maryland Internship Program!

The Maryland Internship Program is designed for students looking to supplement their academic course work with real-world experience in Maryland politics. MIP places 20 to 30 highly-qualified UMD undergraduate students in internships throughout Maryland state government. These internships provide unique internship experiences for motivated and talented students to work within state government. In addition to exposing interns to the governmental process, the program provides Maryland government leaders with research and other professional staff assistance. CAPC has already received a number of internship placement requests from Maryland state and local agencies, but strongly encourages students to think about and research offices that closely match their personal interests. This helps to ensure the student and the office receive the best possible experience.

Each intern with the Maryland General Assembly is awarded a stipend to help defray the costs of participating in the program. The total session stipend varies, depending on the number of days per week the intern works in Annapolis.  To be eligible for the program, a student must be able to work a minimum of two full days each week of session.

·         $850 per session = 2 days per week
·         $1,250 per session = 3 days per week
·         $1,650 per session = 4 days per week
·         $2,000 per session = 5 days per week
