Contribution to Fund Internships for College Students
In 2011, the American Public Works Association Monterey Bay Chapter launched an internship program. The Chapter serves as liaison between students and public works agencies/firms willing to hire interns during the summer or school semester. Our goal is to place engineering students with cities, counties, districts or private firms to give students the opportunity to gain some work experience.
Intern positions may include such emphasis as: traffic engineering, development review, transportation engineering, construction management and inspection, storm water pollution prevention, drainage and flood control. Some of the internships are paid (typically around $14-$18 per hour); most assignments would be in the Monterey Bay Area.
The Monterey Bay Chapter is ready to provide up to $6,000 this year in sponsorships to member agencies/firms interested in supporting this program to subsidize their costs of hiring interns. If your agency is interested in participating, please submit a proposal containing the following information:
Name of agency and contact person
Work location and proposed dates/timeframe
Proposed work for student intern
Description of what experience/exposure your agency can offer
Proposals will be accepted by COB on April 3, 2020. Proposals will be reviewed and ranked.Sponsorship decision will be made by April 17, 2020.Agencies awarded sponsorships will be required to request reimbursement within one year of award.
