PA Municipal Internship Program

Benefitting College Students & Municipalities

The purpose of PA MIP is to connect college / graduate student internship candidates with communities that will offer challenging and rewarding opportunities for on-the-job training.

Municipalities benefit because they gain skilled, knowledgeable resources to address vital projects. Students will gain hands on experience and have the chance to explore career opportunities within municipal government.

A secondary benefit of PA MIP is that it ties education institutions and their communities closer together. Student participation increases public awareness and support of local government operations. The program enables municipal governments to build relationships with the community and local universities.
