Professor Dukakis spearheaded this privately funded internship program to provide students at SPA with first-hand public service experience in government. As power shifts from Washington, DC to the state and local level, the need for talented public servants has never been greater. The Michael S. Dukakis Internship Program provides stipends of $1000 for students serving in non-partisan internships in government, with a special emphasis on California. The focus for this 10-week summer internship is on government settings rather than in non-profits or NGOs. The internships are generally completed over ten weeks during the summer, between June and September. Students who are currently interning or have completed a government internship during the academic year are also eligible, if they meet the criteria below.
Students who have secured a government internship meeting the criteria below may apply.
