Tennessee Public Service Internship Program

Title: Governmental Intern
Location:
Varies
Contact: Steve Thompson
Posted: April 29
Program Brochure

Local government internships will be available this summer through a partnership between the University of Tennessee Institute for Public Service (IPS) , UT Knoxville, UT Chattanooga, East Tennessee State University, the University of Memphis and Tennessee State University. At this time we are seeking prospective community partners and placements for these graduate student interns.

Although we can easily accommodate any city or county with funding for an intern, we do anticipate that we will have more local governments with an interest in hosting interns than we have interns available. This will therefore be a competitive selection process, both for interns and for interested cities and counties. The Institute for Public Service, through the consultants of the Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS) and the County Technical Assistance Service (CTAS), is asking that cities and counties indicate interest in hosting internships by simply providing a letter of interest including the following information:

  • potential work or projects for graduate student interns;
  • specific discipline or field of study (if any);
  • name of a staff member that will work with the MTAS or CTAS consultant for placement and mentoring;
  • any local condition or issue that may be particularly attractive to an intern; and,
  • any ability of the city or county to share in the internship expenses.

Interns will be placed based on the total experience or value to the student and to the program.  To apply see directions on brochure here.

Steve Thompson
Executive Director
Municipal Technical Advisory Service
University of Tennessee
120 Conference Center Building
Knoxville, TN 37996-4105

The students are to work through the faculty at each campus, and the cities and counties will contact the IPS agencies.  In addition to funding the Institute for Public Service will continue to provide a great deal of administrative support during this pilot phase, and as this evolves to a state-wide program we will work with you to keep it successful.
