Applications Being Taken For Mayor's Summer Internship Program

The deadline to apply for the third Richardson Mayor’s Summer Internship Program is Saturday, February 29. The paid internships are open to qualified juniors who attend RISD schools or live in Richardson.

Modeled after the prestigious White House Fellows, the RMSIP is open to juniors who carry a GPA of at least a 2.5 and are eligible to work in the U.S. The program runs between June 1 and Aug. 7, as students are immersed in a professional environment at an area corporation, nonprofit or government entity. Interns work between 20 and 40 hours a week for eight weeks, earning at least $10 an hour. Last year, more than three dozen RISD students participated in the program.
