Rhode Island State Government Internship Program

Eligibility:

The Internship Program is open to college students, graduate students, law school students and high school students.
 
College and law school students are required to be currently enrolled in an accredited institution and have a minimum 2.5 grade point average. While all academic majors are accepted, student experience and academic background are taken into consideration for placement.
 
High school students are required to be Juniors and Seniors. Please note, due to possible age restrictions and job duties, certain placements may not be available for high school students.

Many colleges and universities grant credit for the internship experience. The amount of credit granted to each student differs based on school and hours of service. To find out if you are eligible for credit, please contact your campus advisor.

Upon completion of the internship, placement supervisors complete an Intern Assessment and all interns are required to complete a Summary of Experience Essay.

Internships run in the Fall and Spring semesters and during the Summer and Winter breaks. The Fall and Spring programs run 8-12 weeks, depending on academic requirements and placement needs. The Summer program runs 8 weeks and the Winter break program runs 4 weeks.

**Please note that applications are accepted throughout the year and interviews are completed on a rolling basis. Please submit an application early in order to have greater placement selection.

Interviews are mandatory. In some cases, a phone (skype) interview will be scheduled.
