NORTH CAROLINA STATE GOVERNMENT INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
This program funds student to complete summer projects in state government agencies. Interns are paid $8.25 an hour. To be considered, students must have completed their high school diploma and second year of college (or first year of community college); be enrolled in a college, community college, law, or graduate school in- or out-of-state, currently and for the semester following the internship; be a permanent resident of North Carolina; and have at least a 2.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale. Interns are selected through a competitive process overseen by the N.C. Internship Council. The internship offers optional tours, site visits, and get-togethers, and an internship reception at the Governor’s Mansion.
Check website by November for application due date (usually in January). The Internship Council screens intern applications by mid February and supervisors conduct interviews by the end of February. Applicants are informed of placement in the beginning of March and internships begin in late May
Previous psychology majors have had very positive experiences with the Internships in State Government. For example, one student gained experience in developing behavior change interventions for patients at Iverson Riddle Developmental Center, a facility for people with developmental disabilities. Another worked in Raleigh with the Department of Health and Human Services, on a project with the child fatality prevention team, doing research on the legal outcomes of child homicides.
