2020 Agency Internship Application

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
  • Amount your agency would pay for student intern.

Proposals can be emailed to Maria Esther Rodriguez at:  maria.esther.rodriguez@cityofwatsonville.org

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.

Thank you for your support of our local students!  We look forward to a mutually beneficial internship program. Contact Maria Esther via e-mail or at (831) 768-3112 if you have any questions.
